VIDEO : Belle and Sebastian – “Allie” and “Sukie In The Graveyard” on “Late Night With Seth Meyers”

By Gerard on Tuesday, June 23rd, 2015

(Video courtesy NBC and “Late Night With Seth Meyers”)

Above and below respectively : from last night, Belle and Sebastian performing “Allie” and “Sukie In The Graveyard”, the former culled from ‘Girls In Peacetime Want To Dance’, the latter from ‘The Life Pursuit” and a non-broadcast web exclusive taped for Monday’s “Late Night With Seth Meyers”. Seth’s other guests were Maya Rudolph and the guy who played king-of-the-wolves on “True Blood”, which is a big step up from the time one of our bands was denied couch time in favor of “Trapper John M.D.” 2nd fiddle Gregory Harrison. We’re all moving up in the world!
