On past Yo La Tengo records, Georgia Hubley and Ira Kaplan have taken their band through many sonic spectrums, from gentle acoustic folk to tumultuous feedback-laden rave-ups. This time, the band has returned from the lab with something new and outstanding, its faultless Painful. Heavy organ accompaniment only adds a new layer to the chaotic and wistful moods the band regularly brings to the stage. At 8:45 p.m. at the 9:30 Club, 930 F St. NW. $8. (202) 393-0930. (Brian Nelson)
