The band is out, spinning along the west coast, but I wanted to make sure everyone knew about the upcoming WFMU fundraising Marathon.

YLT will be doing their annual covers night on Friday, March 4th, from 9 PM to midnight EST… and you could be there! I’ll let our friends at WFMU explain it from here:

Pledge $1000 and be a fly on the wall during Yo La Tengo’s set!

As a special incentive for you to make an early pledge to WFMU’s 2011 Marathon, we’ve got a killer offer: be one of the first 3 people to make a paid pledge of $1000 or more before February 28th, and you and one friend can be flies on the wall during Yo La Tengo’s 3-hr request fest at WFMU on 3/4.* Here’s what to do:

1. Head to WFMU’s pledge page, and donate $1000 or more before Feb 28th.

2. Select from our fabulous new batch of swag, and pay with your credit card or via PayPal.

3. Write Yo La Tengo in the comments of your pledge, and send that puppy in! We’ll be in touch to work out the details.

First come, first served! This is an amazing opportunity for you to catch Yo La Tengo in a small and intimate setting, so don’t let it slip away!

* The fine print: Travel to Jersey City and accommodations are not included, no cameras, cell phones, or recording devices will be allowed in the studio.
