Watch Kings Of Leon Play Fallon

Kings Of Leon just released their perfectly competent bar-rock comeback record Mechanical Bull. To celebrate, they stopped by Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday to perform the album track "Temple," which bears hallmarks of the old "Southern rock Strokes" sound but should slot in just fine between "Use Somebody" and "Sex On Fire"… More »

Watch Justin Timberlake Play Kimmel

A big TV night for Justin Timberlake last night. He more or less took over Jimmy Kimmel Live, sitting for an interview with Kimmel and then playing a full set on Kimmel's giant outdoor stage, essentially shutting downtown Los Angeles down in the process. On the show, he did recent singles "Take Back TheMore »

Watch Elvis Costello & The Roots Play Fallon Again

One nice thing about being the house band on a TV show: When you've got some new shit out, you get to do a nice amount of promotion for it. The Roots, who have a plum day job at Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, just released Wise Up Ghost, their unlikely collaborative album with Elvi… More »

Watch Elvis Costello & The Roots Play Fallon

Elvis Costello and the Roots first worked together on the Late Night With Jimmy Fallon stage, and now they've teamed up to make the surprisingly seamless collaborative album Wise Up Ghost, on which Costello's burr meshes with the Roots' hard-swinging old-school funk in a not-remotely-forced sort of way. Last night, Costello and the… More »

Watch Pixies Play Fallon

Last night, the re-reactivated Pixies played new song on TV for the first time in basically forever.

Watch MGMT Don Scuba Gear, Huff Helium On Fallon

The expectation-flummoxing psych-rock boffins in MGMT are about to release their self-titled third album, which, as our own Chris DeVille raves, is "not a complete shitshow." And on last night's episode of Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, the band was in classic trickster-jester form, playing the album cut "Plenty Of Girls In The Sea"… More »

Daft Punk Didn’t Play Colbert Because They’ll Appear At The MTV Video Music Awards

UPDATE: Due to the fact that Robin Thicke's performance was taped last Tuesday, at which point he made a prescient comment about Daft Punk cancelling, some have questioned whether the robots were ever scheduled to appear at all. But Colbert's report still holds up. According to NY Times negotiations between MTV and Comedy… More »

Watch Goodie Mob Play Fallon With The Roots

Atlanta rap greats, one of the greatest groups in the genre's history, are back together and getting ready to release a new album called Age Against The Machine. Earlier this week, they released their confusing chaotic mess of a video for "I'm Set," so it's nice to see them doing something different right away. More »

Daft Punk To Do Colbert Next Week

It's tough to imagine how this will work, exactly, since Daft Punk have never done the late-night show gauntlet. But Pitchfork reports that the duo will be guests on The Colbert Report this coming Tuesday. At this point, that's all we know. Maybe they'll unmask and do a full interview. Maybe they'll sit silent… More »

Watch J Mascis Sit In With The Roots On Fallon

A pair of prolific lifechampions joined forces last night, when J and Questo and the rest of the Roots jammed on a series of bumpers, walk-on songs, and covers (Daft Punk's "Get Lucky," Black Sabbath's "War Pigs") on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. A legitimate opportunity to make meme-magic was lost, though, when Jimmy asked… More »

New Order weren't the only musical guests on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night.

Watch New Order Play Fallon

Synthpop greats New Order have been making the late-night rounds on their most recent American reunion tour, to the point where it's entirely possible that Bernard Sumner didn't get this many chances to look elegantly dour on American TV back when New Order was actually releasing these songs. Last night, Late Night With Jimmy FallonMore »
