Once upon a time, I told someone I was dating that I was going to a Yo La Tengo show. She said, "Yo La Tengo?? That doesn't make any sense. It means 'I The Have.' Stupid name for a band." And that's when I knew we were totally incompatible.
I The Have played four live songs, including a Zombies cover, in the KEXP studio on Tuesday. It was a priceless performance, and I Have It to share with you:
