Yo La Tengo recently set out on tour in support of their new album There’s a Riot Going On and at their stop last night in Philadelphia, the band was joined on stage by famed Philly rocker Kurt Vile.

As the band’s first set came to a close (they played two sets and an encore), Vile joined them on guitar for a cover of The Cure’s 1992 hit “Friday I’m In Love,” which Yo La Tengo recorded for their 2015 mostly covers album Stuff Like That There and have been known to play live on a handful of occasions. Vile also played with the band on their There’s A Riot Going On song “Here You Are.”

Watch it all happen below.
