Watch Parquet Courts Play Fallon

More than a year ago, the New York-via-Texas DIY band Parquet Courts self-released Light Up Gold, their excellent debut album. It’s a long way from there to a network-television late-night spot, but Parquet Courts have made the journey. Last night, the band made their network-TV debut on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, where they played… More »

Watch Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks Play Fallon

Today, Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks release Wig Out At Jagbag’s, the first big, important indie rock album of the new years. And last night, they appeared on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon to perform their memory-lane single “Lariat.” Malkmus rocked multiple necklaces and looked elegantly rumpled, his drummer wore a Frasier T-shirt, and the… More »

Here Are The Musical Sketches From Jimmy Fallon & Justin Timberlake’s Christmas SNL

Christmastime has given us some classic Saturday Night Live episodes over the years. This past weekend’s show, hosted by ex-cast member and future Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon, was not one of the them. Joining Fallon was the dangerously overexposed triple threat Justin Timberlake. It was the highest rated SNL in years, though, and there… More »

Watch Iron & Wine, Calexico, Kathleen Edwards & Glen Hansard Cover “Fairytale Of New York” On Fallon

Fairytale Of New York,” the 1987 duet from the Pogues and Kirsty MacColl, is the best Christmas song ever recorded, and I will not hear any arguments to the contrary. Last night, a roots-music all-star crew got together on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon to cover the song. Iron And Wine’s Sam Beam sang the… More »

Watch Sleigh Bells Play Fallon

Sleigh Bells came into this world as a two-piece and played amazing shows for a couple of years as a two-piece, so it’ll always be weird to see them expanding that roster further and further. On Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night, as on Kimmel last month, the band played with an almost comically… More »

SNL Books Justin Timberlake, Kings Of Leon For December

Watch Cut Copy Play Fallon

Earlier this month, the Australian dance-rockers Cut Copy released their very good new album Free Your Mind. And last night, they were the musical guests on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, where they played the album standout “We Are Explorers” and where frontman Dan Whitford’s particular brand of lanky, floppy-haired charisma was on full display.

Watch The Dismemberment Plan Play Fallon

When D.C. postpunk greats the Dismemberment Plan first reunited nearly three years ago, one of their first stops was Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, which was a fun headfuck for anyone who’d seen them play Fort Reno Park or an American Legion Hall once upon a time. Now that the reunion is an established thing… More »

Watch Chromeo Play Fallon With Death From Above 1979

Last night on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, two important Canadian duos came together. Montreal synth-funkers Chromeo were there to play “Sexy Socialite,” the new single from their forthcoming album White Women, and they conscripted the reunited Toronto noise-punkers Death From Above 1979 into duty as their backing band. I would’ve never thought that DFA… More »

Watch Chris Cornell And The Avett Brothers Cover Pearl Jam On Fallon

Every so often, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon will devote an entire week of musical performances to a single legendary artist. This week is Pearl Jam week. In a lot of ways, that’s a total no-brainer; the band just released Lightning Bolt, their 10th album, and they also just celebrated the 20th anniversary of their… More »
