Late Night TV

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.

Arctic Monkeys Do I Wanna Know Letterman

Last night David Letterman may have won late night tv for the rest of 2014. I don’t know if anyone else can out do the lineup he had last night: Louis C.K. and Arctic Monkeys. Hot damn.

Arctic Monkeys dropped in ahead of their sold out show at Madison freaking Square Garden on February 8 to play “Do I Wanna Know?” Nick is now sported a full on beard and Alex is still shaking those hips.

Watch it below (although the audio is a bit off):

The National Colbert Christmas

This week on The Colbert Report, Colbert is doing various Christmas carols with various artists. Last night Colbert performed “Silver Bells” with Matt Berninger and Byrce & Aaron Dessner of The National, as well as Gregg Allman.

Even if you’re not one for Christmas songs, you’ll still find enjoyment in this just purely to hear The National covering a Christmas song.
