      Yo La Tengo Take Fearless Ass-Beating to the Streets
      It's the wtf album title that's on the lips of everyone in indie-dom
      these days-- and now it's rolling off the tongues of random folks on
      the street and in offices: I Am Not Afraid of You and I Will Beat Your
      Ass. To get the kids psyched for the September 12 release of their
      latest Matador LP, ketchup-ralliers Yo La Tengo have asked fans to
      share YouTube videos of them, their friends, their cats, and
      (seemingly) strangers on the street reciting the kooky, somewhat
      ass-inine declaration, with as much (or as little) feeling as they
      please. The band has ass-embled the first round of clips on their
      album website, which is, yes:
      iamnotafraidofyouandiwillbeatyourass.com

      What's more, it's not too late to have your own ass-whooping boast
      posted. For instructions, and to see who's beating ass these days,
      click the long-ass link above.

      They have it alright, and it is a ginormous tour of North America and
      Europe. Dates ahead.
