The Airborne Toxic Event Performs ‘Wrong’ on Letterman

Posted:

The Airborne Toxic EventLos Angeles-based indie rockers the Airborne Toxic Event recently stopped by The Late Show with David Letterman to perform single “Wrong” from 2014′s Dope Machines.

And it impressed host David Letterman and bandleader Paul Shaffer so much that the Airborne Toxic Event might have to prepare for some extra travel mates on their tour bus.

“Paul and I will be touring with the band for no justifiable reason,” Letterman quipped once the closing notes faded out. “For no money, just because that’s what we want to do.”

Watch the live performance of “Wrong” in the clip below.

Royal Blood Gretsch

Rock and roll took center stage at the 35th annual BRIT Awards, as Royal Blood was named the top British Group.

What’s more, the duo received the award from none other than Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page.

“This is a huge surprise for us,” said singer/bassist Mike Kerr. “It’s probably more of a surprise for everyone here, as you may not even know who we are.”

Royal Blood stood tall among a stacked list of nominees that included Alt-J, Coldplay, One Direction and Clean Bandit.

As if the crowd needed proof of Royal Blood’s ability to rock, the band also took the stage to perform a particularly brutal version of the single “Figure It Out,” which comes off their 2014 self-titled debut.

Watch Royal Blood’s musical appearance, featuring Mike Kerr on his Gretsch G2220 Junior Jet Bass II, and acceptance speech below.
