Last night, the great Vancouver duo Japandroids played a show in Charlottesville, about five minutes from my house. (I didn’t go, couldn’t bring myself to miss NBA Finals game seven, but skipping the show broke my heart a little.) Charlottesville isn’t especially close to New York, so they must’ve hauled ass down after taping their appearance on last night’s Late Show With David Letterman. On the show, Japandroids blasted their way through the triumphant Celebration Rock spring “Adrenaline Nightshift” and gave me some idea of exactly what I missed last night. Watch it below.
Celebration Rock is out now on Polyvinyl, and it is so good.
