Yo La Tengo, David Byrne And Fred Armisen Rocked Japan Benefit

Last night Maxwell's Hannukah house band Yo La Tengo was joined on stage by SNL's resident punk-rocker Fred Armisen and Talking Heads frontman/bike-enthusiast David Byrne. So many amazing words in one sentence, and all for a good cause.

Gothamist was there, and reported:

The band performed a last-minute Japan Benefit Concert to a packed room of sweaty record store clerks--all the proceeds went to Peace Winds Japan, a Tokyo-based non-profit organization helping those displaced by the recent disaster.

Armisen played drums during the entire Yo La Tengo set, and Byrne joined the group to play low-key hits from Yo La Tengo and Talking Heads.
