Watch Arcade Fire On The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Jimmy Fallon’s first week as host of The Tonight Show has been stacked with stars of the rock (U2), pop (Lady Gaga), and country (Tim McGraw) variety. And although some might say they’re “punching above their weight,” Arcade Fire — the festival-headlining possessors of two #1 albums and one Grammy for Album Of The Year… More »

Watch U2 Play Jimmy Fallon’s First Tonight Show

Last night was the night Jimmy Fallon finally wrested control of The Tonight Show from Jay Leno’s fierce, demonic clutches. And Fallon’s first musical guest on the show was a big one: U2, there to hype up their forthcoming as-yet-untitled album. The band played two songs, and they did both in notable fashion. For their… More »

U2, Arcade Fire, Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake Booked For Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’s First Week

We, as a society, have finally shaken off the grim specter of Jay Leno, who hosted his last Tonight Show last week. Jimmy Fallon will take over the institution and move it back to its original home in New York next week, and The Hollywood Reporter has just pointed out the ridiculously stacked first-week guest… More »

Watch Justin Vernon & The Roots Play “Holocene” On Fallon

On Friday night, Justin Vernon sat in with the Roots on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, doing a short and funkily reworked version of Bon Iver’s “Woods” on the show. But as a treat for the live crowd, and for those of us currently watching stuff on the internet, the band also did a full… More »

Watch Justin Vernon Sit In With The Roots On Fallon

On Friday night, the guests on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon were David Beckham, Inside Comedy host David Steinberg, Busta Rhymes, and a whole mess of NFL players. But for many of us, the coolest guest on the show was the one quietly blending in with the Roots: Bon Iver frontman Justin Vernon, who i… More »

Watch ScHoolboy Q Play Fallon

ScHoolboy Q landed on our latest Best Songs Of The Week with “Break The Bank,” but it was another Oxymoron cut, the Chromatics-sampling “Man Of The Year,” that the Black Hippy rapper took to Late Night last night. Watch Q make his network television debut backed by the Roots below. More »

Watch Disclosure Play Fallon With Sam Smith

Last night, the groups behind two of last year’s best albums showed up on American late-night TV. First, there was Vampire Weekend on Kimmel. Then, there was the two Lawrence brothers of Disclosure, whose LP Settle persistently refuses to get old, making their U.S. TV debut on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. The duo brought… More »

Watch Drake Play Beer Hockey On Fallon

Last night, Drake was on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, but he wasn’t the musical guest. (That was Neon Trees, which yergh.) He was there for other reasons. Drake is hosting SNL tomorrow night, and so he was skulking around NBC’s Rockefeller Center headquarters anyway, and he’s got a history as a fun Fallon guest. More »

Watch Bruce Springsteen Sing “Gov. Christie Traffic Jam” And Talk Horse-Sized Ducks On Fallon

At this point, the best reason to look forward to a new Bruce Springsteen album might be the Springsteen-themed episodes of Late Night With Jimmy Fallon that will inevitably follow. Last time around, Springsteen got a whole week on the show, and it included the famous moment where Springsteen and Fallon’s Neil Young impression duetted… More »

Watch London Grammar Play Fallon

The silky, restrained British trio London Grammar walks a line between synthpop and R&B that suggests, say, the xx if they spent a year straight listening to nothing but Sade. (They also collaborated with Disclosure on “Help Me Lose My Mind,” which is reason enough to pay attention to them.) And as Americans learned last… More »

Watch Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings Play Fallon

Just like in last week’s video for “Stranger To Happiness,” Sharon Jones, in the wake of beating cancer, delivered a fantastic performance on Fallon last Friday. You can watch her play the previously released single “Retreat,” which also had this animated video. Watch below. More »

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 Mazzy Star Play Fallon

The beloved West Coast psych-goth-folkies Mazzy Star made their grand return this year with Seasons Of Your Day, their first album in 17 years. In turn, last night on Fallon they made their first TV appearance since the ’90s, performing “California” under appropriately moody lighting. Watch it below. 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

While last week’s Gagathon was hit or miss, Saturday Night Live should get back on track with a trio of comedic actors returning to host the show’s final episodes of 2013. Paul Rudd’s up 12/7 with musical guest One Direction, John Goodman’s on 12/14 with Kings Of Leon, and cast alum/future Tonight Show host Jimmy… More »

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.

Johnny Marr Plays Fallon, Plans Autobiography, Joins Spider-Man 2 Supergroup With Pharrell

Johnny Marr’s headlining tour hits NY this weekend, and in advance of the concert he returned to Late Night With Jimmy Fallon yesterday to perform The Messenger’s “Generate! Generate!” along with Smiths classic “Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want.” But before you watch those performances, some news on the guitarist’s forthcoming autobiography… More »
