Watch A Beautifully Lit Purity Ring Play “Begin Again” On Seth Meyers

Purity Ring got a new light setup! The best thing about the duo's live shows, up until now, has been the crazy brass tendrils of light that Corin Roddick has been using. Last night, though, Purity Ring were the musical guests on Late Night With Seth Meyers, where they performed "Begin Again," the incandescent… More »

Watch Sleater-Kinney Roar Through “Price Tag” On Seth Meyers

In the past few weeks, the best mornings have been the ones where we get to start things off watching Sleater-Kinney play some late-night show or other. Since the band came back with their triumphant return No Cities To Love, Sleater-Kinney have already played Letterman and Conan. Last night, they served musical-guest… More »

Tracee Ellis Ross Wishes Kanye Hadn’t Revealed Her Address

Blackish star Tracee Ellis Ross (who is the daughter of Diana Ross for those who don't know) is in New York for Fred Armisen's Lipstick Makers All-Star event, so naturally she dropped by Late Night With Seth Meyers where Armisen is the bandleader. More »

Watch J Mascis Cover Mazzy Star’s “Fade Into You” On Late Night

Back in 2013, Dinosaur Jr. frontman J Mascis released a solo cover of Mazzy Star's 1993 soft-focus torch-song classic "Fade Into You"; it was a limited-edition 7" that came with Mascis' personalized sneakers, so don't feel bad if you missed it. Last night, Mascis played the song for NBC cameras. Mascis was the… More »

Watch Sturgill Simpson’s Victorious Visit To Late Night With Seth Meyers

Sturgill Simpson is moving up in the world. Besides the honor and glory that comes from cracking Stereogum's list of the year's best albums, Simpson was recently nominated for a Grammy, and our own Tom Breihan notes that the country singer's upcoming Charlottesville, Virginia show sold out two months in advance after being… More »

Watch Interpol Brush The Snow Off On Seth Meyers

A week ago, Interpol were trapped on their tour bus in a Buffalo snowstorm. Last night, they were on TV. Interpol had already been booked to play Late Night With Seth Meyers, and I'd like to imagine that they would've hooked up a webcam and done their performance remotely if they hadn't been able… More »

Watch Ex Hex Rip Shit Up On Seth Meyers

Last night, Mary Timony's badass garage rock power trio Ex Hex made their late-night TV debut on Late Night With Seth Meyers, and banged through two of the songs on their ridiculously fun debut album Rips. On the show proper, they knocked out "Don't Wanna Lose," and then they played their first single "More »

Watch Jenny Lewis’ Smooth, Self-Assured Seth Meyers Performance

Late Night With Seth Meyers doesn't have all that many musical guests, but Jenny Lewis, the former Rilo Kiley leader, was on the show last night. Earlier in the year, Lewis released the great solo album The Voyager, her first in some time. And on the show last night, she sang "She's Not Me,"… More »

Watch Jessie Ware Sing The Hell Out Of “Say You Love Me” On Seth Meyers

Jessie Ware's slow-burning soul ballad "Say You Love Me" is both my favorite song on her very good sophomore album Tough Love and one of my favorite songs of the year. Last night, Ware was a musical guest on Late Night With Seth Meyers, and she sang a warm, deeply felt version of… More »

Watch The Both Bring The Hooks To Seth Meyers

The Both, the still-fresh duo of Aimee Mann and Ted Leo, released a pretty great self-titled album of spirited, assured power-pop earlier this year. And every time they show up on late-night TV or drop a new music video, it's a reminder of how sharp and polished a hook-machine these two are, both together and… More »

Weird Al Visits Seth Meyers, Plays Jesus In Award-Winning Short Film

UHF obviously got robbed, but now there's a chance that "Weird Al" Yankovic could star in an Oscar-winning movie. As Billboard reports, Yankovic plays Jesus -- or, rather, he plays an actor who plays Jesus -- in a new short film called The Moving Picture Co. 1914. Frequent Simpsons director Mark Kirkland made… More »

Watch Banks Perform On Seth Meyers

Banks released her debut album Goddess today and celebrated it with an appearance on Seth Meyers last night. (The album, by the way, is pretty good, but overly long -- definitely could have cut a few songs from its hour-long runtime to make a really solid 40-minute affair.) She sang the Schlomo-produced "Brain" and,… More »

Watch Weird Al Make Up TV Theme Song Lyrics On The Emmys

We were kind of close when we speculated last week that Weird Al would perform at an awards show. We thought it would be the VMAs because, you know, music, but it turns out that he was preparing for a surprise appearance at tonight's Emmy Awards. He performed in a segment where he made… More »

Watch St. Vincent Join Marnie Stern And Late Night‘s 8G Band Again

All week, St. Vincent's Annie Clark is sitting in with the 8G Band on Late Night With Seth Meyers, filling in as bandleader for her friend Fred Armisen. We posted video of her first night on the show, and she was back again last night, and the band once again featured her fellow shredder… More »

Watch St. Vincent Play 8G Bandleader, Strand Of Oaks Perform On Seth Meyers

As previously mentioned, St. Vincent is subbing for Fred Armisen as band leader on Late Night With Seth Meyers for last night and tonight. She didn't have much to do yesterday, though Seth did ask her about her performance in front of 15,000 people in Brooklyn's Prospect Park over the weekend and she… More »

St. Vincent Will Be Seth Meyers‘ Band Leader Next Week

St. Vincent fans should mark their calendars next week as Annie Clark will be subbing for Fred Armisen as the band leader on Late Night. She'll be on the show 8/11 and 8/12, i.e., Monday and Tuesday. It should be interesting -- the band leader is typically just there to support the host, but it'… More »

Watch Charli XCX Play Seth Meyers & TODAY, Hear ASTR’s “Boom Clap” Remix

Charli XCX has a hit with her recent single "Boom Clap," which was written for The Fault In Our Stars (that critically acclaimed movie about teens with cancer that I'm avoiding because it'll make me cry), and last night she stopped by Seth Meyers to perform the song. If you've ever seen her live, you… More »

J Mascis’ Tied To A Star Out This Summer

J Mascis is sitting in with the 8G Band on Late Night With Seth Meyers all this week, and it turns out that arrangement is at least in part a way to alert the public to the imminent release of a new Mascis solo album. Last night, almost in passing, Meyers announced that Masci… More »

Watch J Mascis Sit In With Late Night‘s 8G Band

One of the perks of a Late Night band comprising Fred Armisen and an array of indie rock veterans has been the parade of musical luminaries sitting in. Marnie Stern and Eleanor Friedberger have each taken a turn with the 8G Band in recent months, and last night J Mascis joined their ranks. More »

Watch M.I.A. Perform “Double Bubble Trouble” On Seth Meyers

"Double Bubble Trouble," a highlight from M.I.A.'s 2013 album Matangi, did us the favor of reminding the world that Shampoo's "Trouble" exists, and last night she was on Late Night With Seth Meyers to perform it. Her stage set was a thing of beauty: An excitable dirtbag dancer, bored extras in office chair… More »
