Tune in to CBS tonight around 12:20AM (11:20PM eastern) to see Kurt Vile and the Violators make their network TV debut on The Late Show With David Letterman! They’ll be playing “Wakin On A Pretty Day” from the new album, “Wakin On A Pretty Dave”. Here Kurt is chilling backstage:
Versions of “Bully” have been a part of live shows for some time, but it’s now given an official release and available as a single from iTunes where’s it’s also added to the iTunes version of the album with bonus tracks. Sun is also available on physical formats from the Matador store (excluding “Bully”).
And in other Late Night Television News, be sure to mark your calendars for Friday, May 17 as Kurt Vile And The Violators will be taking the stage of the Late Show with David Letterman performing a song off of their forthcoming release, Wakin On A Pretty Daze.
Listen to Wakin On A Pretty Daze now over at NPR
and pre-order the album (out 4.9) over at the Matador Store
If you missed Conan O’Brien‘s TBS show on Wednesday night, well, you missed Russell Brand doing A LOT OF TALKING. But more to the point, you also missed Chan Marshall and the new-look Cat Power ensemble performing “Cherokee” from the critically acclaimed ‘Sun’ LP/CD/digital full-length.
Pending apocalypse or not, Paul Banks will be performing tonight on CBS’s “Late Show With David Letterman” (11:30 pm, eastern US, 10:30 central). Dave’s other guests are Denzel Washington and Pauley Perrette. The former is unlikely to be asked any questions about “Heart Condition”, but if that really bothers you so much, go start your own talk show.
Thespian powerhouse Sherman Hemsley (above, right), best known for his role as George Jefferson on Norman Lear’s “The Jefferson” and “All In The Family”, passed away today at the age of 74. Hemsleys love for Nektar, Gentle Giant and loose association with Yes’ Jon Anderson might not figure in his TMZ obit, but that’s why we’re not TMZ. For one thing, our office is much nicer. For another, we fixate on the really substantial things about celebrities, living or dead (ie. their record collections).
Long time fans, first time performers! Last night Girls were able to stop by Conan for a very special appearance, their very first on his show. Those who tuned in were treated to a heartfelt rendition of Love Like A River. For anyone who missed it, the good folks at Conan have provided this clip from the show.
Girls are now headed into the desert for a special show at Pappy & Harriet’s tonight in Pioneertown, CA and then hit Coachella tomorrow for the second weekend of madness.
