opening for The Freewheeling Yo La Tengo

A review of the recent show (1 Nov) in San Francisco at the Palace of Fine Arts, opening for The Freewheeling Yo La Tengo, from Hippies Are Dead:

Richman's set was ultimately a unique blend of singer-songwriter melodies, social commentary, and comedy act. It was vastly different from his output with the Modern Lovers, but pretty much a "par for the course" performance for those familiar with his more recent work. "Par for the course" in this case was no mean feat, and Richman delivered a great set of sweet tunes. His performance was compelling enough that it even demanded an encore, which is unusual for an opener, to say the least. (read more & pics)

Yo La Tengo lately have been heard to be covering "New Teller" (read more in Variety)
