The Lumineers On Fallon: TONIGHT!

lumineers

 

The Lumineers are one of the hottest bands in America right now, and it’s not hard to see why.  The heartfelt music that the indie-folk trio creates inspires soulful sing-alongs and infinite repeated listens.

Our friends in St. Louis will get to see the band live at the Chaifetz Arena on October 4 (tickets here), but the rest of us can check them out from the comfort of our living rooms tonight when they star as Jimmy Fallon’s musical guests.  Be sure to tune-in and let us know what you think of the performance.

Did You Catch Yo La Tengo On Jimmy Fallon?

Yo La Tengo

Indie rock royalty Yo La Tengo stopped by Jimmy Fallon’s Late Night studios earlier this month to perform the bright “Ohm” from their latest release, Fade.   Check out their vibrant performance featuring Portlandia‘s Fred Armisen on drums here.

Paste magazine remarked that the album “is just 10 distinctive, beautiful songs in 45 minutes meant to show their languid new peers (Real Estate, Beach House, Grizzly Bear, what have you) who’s boss. It shouldn’t work. It’s to that roaring 20-year streak’s goodwill that it does.”   Rolling Stone similarly raved, “The band revels in its pop modesty, as beautifully as ever.”

Yo La Tengo will return to Madison’s Barrymore Theater next Tuesday (February 5) to perform two sets for their loyal fans.  Get your tickets here.  

The Word From Brother Ali Straight From The Barrymore + TV Appearance TONIGHT 12.15.09

When Brother Ali brought his Fresh Air Tour to the Barrymore Theatre last month, Madison was treated to a performance by one of the most impressive new stars of the rap world.  His latest release, Us, has been widely praised in the music press and has landed on several “Best of 2009” lists.  We were thrilled to bring this Madison-born artist back to town, and from the sounds of this insightful video interview, Ali was pretty thrilled to be here too!  Check out what he had to say, and see if you can spot yourself in the crowd shots.

Need more Brother Ali?  He’ll take the stage alongside The Roots as the special guest performer on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon tonight.  (NBC, 11:35 pm)
