The New Pornographers play Crash Years on Fallon

May 6th, 2010 at 1:37 pm by Patrick

The New Pornographers performed “Crash Years” on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon yesterday. Neko Case takes the lead vocal and yes, that’s Todd Barry playing the sleigh bell. Dan Bejar was also in the house, and it’s a straight-up loose, joyous performance of a kind rarely seen on broadcast TV. And some serious rock cello moves.

    Hey, out of curiosity, who was that playing guitar next to Kathryn?

  2. Robby Says:

    that’s Miranda Brown, who is touring with the NPs. She has played with Crooked Fingers, the AC Newman band, many others.

  3. Brad Says:

    Ah ha, I knew she looked familiar… I’ve seen her play with Crooked Fingers. How ’bout the cellist? Is he touring as well? He also looks fairly familiar.

  4. Robby Says:

    The cellist’s (he also plays sax) name is Ben Kalb, he’ll be touring with them.
    To clarify my last comment, Miranda will only be touring with the NPs on select dates (mostly UK/EU).

    That cellist was pretty intense!
