Just this morning I was thinking of who Saturday Night Live might tap as their next musical guests. Now that Kanye and Kings of Leon have already played and Rihanna is about to, the late night jokesters have basically used the three biggest names releasing albums this fall/winter. Nicki Minaj, My Chemical Romance, and, um, Daft Punk were a few possibilities that came to mind, but as it turns out, SNL will first go with the indies. As revealed today, Arcade Fire is confirmed to play SNL on November 13th, while UK pop group Florence and the Machine will appear one week later on November 20th. Scarlett Johansson will serve as the host for the former and Anne Hathaway the latter.
Arcade Fire have played the show once before, as evident by the video you see above. Florence and the Machine, however, will be making their SNL debut.
