The psychedelic sounds of the Yo La Tengo

Nineteen years ago today, we open for one of our heroes, Doug Sahm and his Last Real Texas Blues Band, in Seattle, our final time-killing date awaiting the start of Lollapalooza.  We play in our acoustic guise, and close with “You’re Gonna Miss Me.”  What?!  Did we run that by the headliners, who had been known to do that number?  No risk of that five years earlier, when our Fakebook touring lineup featuring Kevin Salem and Wilbo Wright ends our set at the Paradise in Boston the same way.  I guess it goes over well–for the first and last time while opening for the Sundays, we play an encore.
