Late Night Lobotomy (3/13)

on March 14, 2011, 5:00pm

Some of our more observant readers may have noticed that last week we didn’t run the Late Night Lobotomy. That can be easily explained away. For whatever reason, everyone except Craig Ferguson took the week off last week and he didn’t have any artists scheduled. It was a week  full of re-runs.

I wish I had better news for you this week, but it’s surprisingly bleak yet again. Although we’re not going to see too many re-runs (I don’t think Carson Daly’s filmed a new show in over three months),  the new acts are nothing to write home about. Late night almost feels like a ghost town. My hypothesis: everybody who’s anybody is going to be performing/attending SXSW this week. Seriously. Have you seen the lineup? It’s unreal. So, we could talk about mediocre performances ’til the cows come home, but let’s keep our eyes on SXSW. CoS will no doubt be keeping you posted on the festival. Or, better yet, if your week just opened up and you have a thousand bucks to burn on last-minute bookings and a festival badge, do that.

Performers this week include Cold War Kids, The Wombats, and good old Alice Cooper. Oh, and a double helping of Avril Lavigne – still peddling her faux-punk to innocent children and feeble-minded teens – and Serj Tankian, the least deserving frontman in rock and roll history of a solo career.
