The Strypes played Letterman, guess what happened?

Rising Irish rock band The Strypes played the Late Show with David Letterman last night, and guess what happened? Ol’ Dave found a new favorite band to go along with the likes of Future Islands, Little Dragon, The Orwells, and Cage the Elephant.

The Strypes’ performance of “What A Shame” was met with unabashed enthusiasm, as Letterman appeared to almost hyperventilate as he exclaimed “Yeah!” “How about that!” and “Money!”. The band seemed a little too unfazed by his reaction, which is strange considering what they now have to look forward to. “I’m very excited,” Letterman explained. “Before the show I said if this goes well, I’ll take you all to play laser tag.”
