Not too much to re-hash from last week. In fact, there’s only really one that was a must see. Deerhunter blew the pants off everyone in Conan’s audience with their network television debut. Why it took them so long to get a spot on TV is beyond me, but they played Halcyon hit “Helicopter”, following up an odd interview session with the Kardashians. Strange combination, obviously, but CoS news writer Harry Painter hit it right on the head when he said “Not sure if it was a wise mix, but if one 13-year-old girl became a Deerhunter fan last night, it was all worth it.” Catch up with that here.
Unfortunately, this week is looking equally bleak, with only one real highlight. Of course we’ll have Delta Spirit, Two Door Cinema Club, Matt & Kim, and Florence and the Machine on Carson Daly if you dare stay up that late, but other than that it’s a pretty meh week. High notes: Robert Plant visiting Jimmy Fallon, Social Distortion’s popping in to Kimmel, She & Him continue their never-ending tour with an appearance on Conan, and Ra Ra Riot will be paying a visit to David Letterman. Funny notes: Jonny Lang isn’t dead and will be proving that with a performance on Jay Leno, and R. Kelly will be playing back to back nights on Jimmy Fallon (bad week for Jimmy’s booking people?). Highest note: Crystal Castles will be playing Jimmy Kimmel which could mean a few things: A) They might get to play more than one song, B) We might get to see one of Alice Glass’ signature freak-outs on television, and C) Kimmel’s Thursday night show may or may not be the place to be this week.
Heres your Late Night Lobotomy.
