Yo La Tengo Swings with the Fishes Tonight in Buffalo

By Joyce Kryszak

Buffalo, NY – Here's a question you probably won't hear on Jeopardy. What do an indie-rock band from Hoboken, New Jersey, a French film maker, and a jelly fish have in common? The answer is a multi-media event tonight at Sheas called the "Sounds of Science."

It's sponsored by Hallwalls and features short underwater films by director Jean Painleve and live music by the rock band Yo La Tengo. WBFO's Joyce Kryszak talked with bandmember Ira Kaplan, who gives us a glimpse into this strange underwater experience.
