Last night, My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James returned to 30 Rock after showing audiences “A New Life” on Monday’s episode of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. This time, however, he sat in as the guest vocalist for house band The Roots, leaving the big stage open for the night’s true musical guest: Local Natives. In support of their recent CoS Top Star-rated Hummingbird, the Silver Lake collective dazzled viewers with a rich performance of “Heavy Feet”. Replay all the music-related hoopla below.
It’s funny how fate works to one’s benefit from time to time, so we’ll be sure to capitalize on the rare moment. Check out our two very recent cover stories on Fallon’s musical guests: Philip Cosores’ Local Natives: Place We Don’t Know and Ben Kaye’s Jim James: Build It Up Strong.
