PAPER
on the front lines of cultural chaos since 1984.


The toys are coming! The toys are coming! Although Yo La Tengo's annual Hanukkah residency at the now shuttered iconic Hoboken venue Maxwell's is no more, their cheeky holiday cheer hasn't diminished. In the video for 'Toymageddon,' an advanced track off their comedy album 2776 out June 2014, they recruit comedian Eugene Mirman and NPR's This American Life host Ira Glass to tell a dak tale of toys turning and igniing  'the ultimate war on Christmas.' First to arrive, My Little Ponies (obviously) shooting rainbow beams from their eyes. Then laughing clowns, talking bears and toy soldiers who will 'roast our nuts on an open fire.' Yikes. Stay safe out there.
