This Afternoon : SAVAGES on “Ellen”

By Gerard on Tuesday, April 19th, 2016

(photo by Tim)

Those of us who are long in the tooth can remember when a young Ellen DeGeneres was entrusted with propping up the career of contemporary art’s 2nd most prominent mercury poisoning victim (Graham Parker being the first), Jeremy Piven. Of course, Ellen’s come an incredibly long way since then, fighting off a strong challenge from Matador office favorite, “Hot Bench”, to become the modern day ruler of daytime television. Tuesday marks yet another highlight in Ellen’s afternoon tenure when she welcomes Savages to her syndicated chat show, along with crowd-pleasing star of “Joe Dirt” and “Joe Dirt 2″, David Spade. The program airs at 4pm eastern, but please check your local listings because we cannot be expected to learn the names of every regional broadcaster. In New York, that’s Channel 4 (WNBC), in Los Angeles Channel 4 (KNBC). Hey, if you live in flyover country, at least the gas is cheaper.

ADDENDUM : local listings / airtimes for “Ellen”

Savages on tour :

April 19 – The Fillmore San Francisco, CA
April 20 – Fox Theater, Pomona, CA (with Death Grips)
April 22 – Coachella, Indio, CA
April 24 – Vive Latino Festival, Mexico City, MX

SAVAGES COVERED EAGLES OF DEATH METAL’S “I LOVE YOU ALL THE TIME” AT LA MAROQUINERIE

Savages played in Paris at La Maroquinerie on Tuesday to play songs from their upcoming album Adore Life. In addition, the band covered “I Love You All The Time” by Eagles of Death Metal, a track which all proceeds are donated to The Sweet Stuff Foundation.

For those of you who don’t speak French (author of this post included):
“A year ago I was in LA and met some friends while they were working in the studio. They were recording on a song and I helped them a little bit with some lyrics in French. We had a really great day. Since then they’ve released their new album and tonight we would like to play you this song because the band was Eagles of Death Metal”
