Veruca Salt On Conan - Seether

Earlier this year Veruca Salt announced that they would reunited for a new Record Store Day single called “The Museum Of Broken Relationships” as well as a reunion tour.

Last week they warmed up for the tour with a performance on Conan, the first time the band’s original lineup has played together since 1996. They played “Seether” of course, and it hard. They seemed to have a lot of fun doing it, which is always good to see.

Catch the performance below.

Watch St. Vincent Play SNL

By Will Oliver, May 20th 2014

St. Vincent SNL

Over the weekend St. Vincent played the season finale of SNL. This was a major win for music if you ask me, no matter if it “confused the masses.”

She played both “Digital Witness” and “Birth In Reverse” off of this year’s self-titled album. It was awesome to see her rocking the stage, doing her thing in front of a national audience. SNL alum Andy Samberg was the host.

Check out both of her performances below. Find my coverage of her show at Terminal 5 from earlier in the year right here.

Parquet Courts Seth Myers

Last week Parquet Courts stopped by Late Night With Seth Myers to play new track “Black and White” which is off their upcoming album Sunbathing Animal (hear the title track here).

I heard them play the track earlier this year when they played at The Acheron in Brooklyn and it sounded just as fierce as it does on the Myers performance, only they have Fred Armisen (Myers bandleader) help out on guitar towards the end, which was very cool.

Watch the performance below.

The National Fallon

If you’re a fan of The National and haven’t seen their recently released documentary, Mistaken For Strangers, get on that right now. It’s fantastic.

To support it they stopped by Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show to perform “This Is The Last Time”, one of the many highlights off last year’s Trouble Will Find Me. They are supported by a string section, which only heightened the already mighty live version of the song.

Watch below.

The National To Play SNL

By Will Oliver, February 28th 2014

The National

“It’s about god damn time.”

That’s what I said out loud when I read that The National were booked as the musical guests on the March 8 episode of Saturday Night Live. Lena Dunham of Girls will be the host.

After all these years, it feels like a victory to see the band booked for SNL. They sure do deserve it. It will continue to push them towards a much bigger audience, something that they’ve been growing steadily with every year it seems.

No one deserves this more. Be sure to tune in or set your DVR’s. This is going to be awesome.
