Tonight : Perfume Genius On CBS’ “The Late Show With David Letterman”

By Gerard on Thursday, October 30th, 2014


Perfume Genius‘ U.S. network television debut happens tonight on CBS’ “The Late Show With David Letterman” (11:35 pm eastern, 10:35pm central). Dave’s other guest tonight is NBC news anchor Brian Williams, and if you think a guy in that position being funny is a little incongruous, you’re never heard David Brinkley’s unreleased Laff Records LP.  That aside, we’re pretty sure this is going to be one of those TV moments you’ll feel like a real dope for missing (and not simply the part where Brian Williams tries to kick Dave in the headt).

upcoming European dates :

November
11 – La Maroquinerie, Paris France
12 – Exile, Zurich, Switzerland
13 – Le Romandie, Lausanne Switzerland
14 – Depot, Leuven Belgium
16 – Vega, Copenhagen Denmark
17 - Lido, Berlin German
18 – Pret-a-ecouter Festival, Heidelberg Germany
19 – Bitterzoet, Amsterdam Holland

Tonight : The New Pornographers On CBS’ “The Late Show WIth David Letterman”

By Gerard on Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014

(footage courtesy The Current)

Let’s get the gloating out of the way first and foremost : congratulations to The New Pornographers on ‘Brill Bruisers’ entering next week’s US Billboard Album Chart at #13 ; that’s the highest charting album in the band’s career. There’s no time for victory laps, however, otherwise they’d be way too disheveled for tonight’s appearance on CBS’ “The Late Show With David Letterman” (11:35 eastern, 10:35 central). Dave’s other guests tonight are Kristen Wiig and Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).

order ‘Brill Bruisers’ from the following :

Yo La Tengo On KLRU’s “Overheard With Evan Smith”

By Gerard on Thursday, June 26th, 2014

During a recent visit to Austin, TX while performing the live score to Sam Green’s “The Love Song Of R. Buckminster Fuller”, Yo La Tengo’s Ira Kaplan and Georgia Hubley visited the studios of KLRU for an extended chat with “Overheard” host Evan Smith.  In terms of prestige, this is considerably more exciting than a booking on the Bethanny Frankel show.  In terms of loud audience participation and distasteful bullying, it ranks somewhere below Wally George’s “Hot Seat”.     You stream the interview here.

Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks – Today On WNYC’s “Soundcheck”, Last Night On “The Late Show With David Letterman”

By Gerard on Tuesday, May 20th, 2014

Heads up — the Jicks will be performing this afternoon at 2pm (eastern) on WNYC’s “Soundcheck” , which you can hear all over the globe at WNYC.org. In addition, here’s Monday night’s performance of “Houston Hades”, from “The Late Show With David Letterman”. And if you’re thinking this entire campaign was an awful lot of work just so we could get Letterman to say “jagbag” on TV, well, you’re not wrong.

Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks – Tonight On CBS’ “The Late Show With David Letterman”

By Gerard on Monday, May 19th, 2014

(photo culled from Food Is The New Rock, where you can hear Joanna, Stephen and Mike discussing, y’know, food)

Barring some kind of major miracle (ie. SM knocking out a new album in the next 5 months or Colbert getting cold feet), tonight (Monday, May 19) will most likely mark Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks’ final appearance on “The Late Show With David Letterman”, an occasion that ranks somewhere between Craig Ferguson’s final show and the David Letterman’s final appearance on “The Late Show With David Letterman” in terms of historical significance.

We’re told the Jicks will be performing “Houston Hades” off ‘Wigout At Jagbags’, but given the show isn’t being taped until later today, reporting this is just a tad premature. LET THE CBS CENSORS DO THEIR JOBS, that’s what I always say in these situations. They don’t show up at our place of work and tell us which critically acclaimed, commercially underwhelming records to release, nor should we poke around the Ed Sullivan Theater trying to tell them that “kids grow up really fast nowadays” and “the whole world’s a fucking sewer besides”.

It’s all happening at 11:35 eastern time, by the way, or shortly after animal trainer Jack Hanna subdues a brutish creature from either soiling or maiming the host. But enough about Dave’s old stalker — enjoy the show everybody!

Tommorow On WTF : Stephen Malkmus With Marc Maron

By Gerard on Wednesday, April 30th, 2014

(we’re very hopeful the entire band will be in focus when they’re on national television)

You might recall a few months ago a wide-ranging conversation Marc Maron had with Josh Homme — if not, you can find it here. Either way, on tomorrow’s edition of Marc’s WTF, his featured guest is Stephen Malkmus. Good thing they’ll be getting into some intense subject matter as the latter is unlikely to receive any couch time when the Jicks appear on CBS’ “The Late Show With David Letterman” on Monday, May 19 (see how I slipped that in there?)

Queens of The Stone Age – Live On The 56th Grammy Awards, This Sunday Night

By Gerard on Tuesday, January 21st, 2014

Though we’re not often in the habit of encouraging you to watch major awards shows here at Matador Records & Filmworks, we must make a rare exception in the case of this Sunday evening’s 2014 Grammy Awards on CBS. As mentioned previously, Queens of the Stone Age are up for 3 Grammys this year, having earned nominations for  Best Rock Album (‘…Like Clockwork’), Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical, and Best Rock Performance (“My God Is The Sun”).  On top of that QOTSA will be making their Grammy telecast debut during the program’s grand finale, performing alongside fellow nominees / compatriots Nine Inch Nails, Dave Grohl and Lindsey Buckingham.

Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks – “Lariat” on Fallon / Reddit AMA / Happy National Wigout At Jagbags Day

By Gerard on Tuesday, January 7th, 2014

(“Lariat”, from Monday’s broadcast of “Late Night With JImmy Fallon”, footage courtesy NBC)

The 6th album of studio mastery from Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks, the not-at-all Dag Nasty baiting ‘Wigout At Jagbags’ is in finer record stores and is available from all better digital retailers today. (ALSO AVAILABLE DIRECT FROM US).

If this week’s multiple NYC instores, gourmet ice cream tastings and network TV appearances weren’t enough Jicks activity, Stephen will be doing a Reddit AMA on Thursday at 1pm. Will it be as illuminating as the AMA with “A Amazon warehouse associate who processes your returns”? I’m betting yes.
