Yo La Tengo Yolatengo Server Outage

Final Update: We have restored all accounts to the server from our latest backup on Friday morning. This restoration process completed on Saturday evening and at this time all accounts are back online. We apologize again for the unexpected outage as well as any loss of data between the time the server crashed and the backup was restored. Major outages of this nature are luckily rare, but never fun for anyone and we are glad we were able to bring things up to a working order so quickly on a holiday weekend. We appreciate everyone's patience and understanding as we completed this. If you need anything don't hesitate to reach out to us.


  • We have restored the primary server and are now pulling backups of all accounts from offsite storage. This is a time-intensive process but one that will be running automatically for the next several hours. We will update here when all accounts are back online.

  • We are recovering the file system from a backup taken yesterday morning, and will be working on restoring all sites over the the next several hours.

  • We continue to troubleshoot possible hard drive corruption preventing connections to the yolatengo server. We apologize for the unexpected downtime and will update as we know more.

  • Yo La Tengo is experiencing network connectivity issues and we are investigating the issue.
