Spoon - "Hot Thoughts", From Tuesday's "The Ellen DeGeneres Show"






As mentioned earlier, Spoon appeared on Tuesday's edition of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" and performed the titular track from their universally hailed new album, 'Hot Thoughts'. Remarkably, said broadcast occurred just days after the 20th anniversary of Ellen being on the cover of Time Magazine, and if you're lucky, there's a patient older person in your life who can calmly explain what magazines were.

Today : Spoon On "The Ellen DeGeneres Show"



Spoon make their first appearance on "The Ellen Degeneres Show" this afternoon at 4pm ; it might even be the band's first domestic appearance on a major daytime show (the Elias Koteas Sports Bureau's website is down, otherwise I'd look it up).  Ellen's other guests today are Carson Daly and Rob Delaney.

Spoon - "I Ain't The One" debut on "The Late Late Show", Rough Trade NYC Listening Party Tonight



This past Thursday night on CBS' "The Late Late Show With James Corden", Spoon debuted "I Ain't The One" from the forthcoming 'Hot Thoughts'.

Tonight at Rough Trade NYC, (64 N. 9th Street), you can pre-order the clear vinyl version of 'Hot Thoughts' and listen to the full album 4 days early in the comfort of the SONOS Listening Room. There's artwork on display by Christine Messersmith, free snacks, and a chance to win other, as yet unspecified prizes (which is not to say the snacks aren't going to be overwhelming)

This Afternoon : SAVAGES on "Ellen"



(photo by Tim)

Those of us who are long in the tooth can remember when a young Ellen DeGeneres was entrusted with propping up the career of contemporary art's 2nd most prominent mercury poisoning victim (Graham Parker being the first), Jeremy Piven. Of course, Ellen's come an incredibly long way since then, fighting off a strong challenge from Matador office favorite, "Hot Bench", to become the modern day ruler of daytime television. Tuesday marks yet another highlight in Ellen's afternoon tenure when she welcomes Savages to her syndicated chat show, along with crowd-pleasing star of "Joe Dirt" and "Joe Dirt 2", David Spade. The program airs at 4pm eastern, but please check your local listings because we cannot be expected to learn the names of every regional broadcaster. In New York, that's Channel 4 (WNBC), in Los Angeles Channel 4 (KNBC). Hey, if you live in flyover country, at least the gas is cheaper.
