Watch Japandroids Play Conan

Last night, Japandroids, one of our finest rock bands currently working, brought their thunderous simplicity to the stage at Conan, blasting through the Celebration Rock opener “The Nights Of Wine And Roses.” It’s not substitute for being there, obviously, but I’m pretty impressed at how the band has managed to translate their live intensity, as undiminished as possible, to the late-night TV stage. Conan O’Brien even seemed to enjoy it a little bit, and he never seems to enjoy anything anymore. Watch it below.

Celebration Rock is out now on Polyvinyl.
