not to get all pedantic but McNew's first YLT album appearance was on May I Sing With Me (Alias, 1992).

"It was a party, but open to the public as well," Kaplan remembers. "They started talking about the money they could pay us. The money wasn't important, and we told them, 'You're not going to pay us what we normally get, and that's fine. We don't mind. We'll do it for another reason.' So we came up with another idea and told them, 'This is what we want to do: We'll reenact your article.' It actually took a little bit of convincing on their part. It took them by surprise, it gathered momentum, and they were super into it. It created momentary confusion, and it was a good experience."
Exploring their creativity even further, Kaplan and company are currently on a "Spinning Wheel" tour, in which the band performs two sets at each stop on the tour — excepting its appearance at next weekend's Westword Music Showcase — and the songs are decided at random by the spinning of a wheel, like on a game show.

"It will be the Condo Fucks one night," says Kaplan. "It'll be Freewheeling Yo La Tengo another night. We do Dump sets. If it's a short set, we do a second set afterward. It just seemed like a way of giving us the opportunity to play in a variety of ways without giving any kind of warning what's coming. It's sort of 'anything's possible,' and we find out when the audience does."
An audience of friends, no doubt.
