Starting tomorrow Yo La Tengo hit the beach in Australia and New Zealand for 5 shows. Whether or not these actually take place on a beach remains to be seen, but as I write in the drizzle of London, I can only imagine that Australia is all shorts, surfboards and beaches. You guys are so lucky.

Oakland, CA's Tank Crimes will be releasing the 6th edition in Fucked Up's Zodiac Series this April 15 with a 12"/CD/digital EP of 'Year Of The Dragon'. The titular, epic A-side clocks in at 17 minutes long and is backed by covers of Cardboard Brains' "I Wanna Be A Yank" and The Ugly's "Disorder". The first pressing of the 12" is said to include a 6-minute, edited version of "Year Of The Dragon" on a 7" flexi-disc.

In what has become a tradition almost as cherished as declarations the New York Mets are financially solvent, Yo La Tengo will make their annual pilgrimage to WFMU's Jersey City studios this Wednesday night (February 26, 9pm eastern) for the Evan "Funk" Davies show (co-hosted this week by longtime YLT associate Gaylord Fields). As you've probably already guessed, for the the paltry sum of $100, Yo La Tengo will (hopefully) cover a song of your selection, with all funds going to WFMU's annual Marathon.
