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.

Lera Lynn Performs on Letterman

Posted:

Lera Lynn

Nashville-based Americana singer-songwriter Lera Lynn appeared on The Late Show With David Letterman earlier this week, performing “Out to Sea.” The tune is the opening track to Lynn’s album, The Avenues, which dropped in September 2014.

Although frequently categorized as Americana, folk, or country, Lynn headed into Joshua Grange’s studio in Los Angeles to record an album without genre limitations.

“I just want to stop thinking about music as a marketing campaign,” she said.  “Ray Charles went from jazz to R&B to country. Paul McCartney will do a ballad next to ‘Helter Skelter’ and not think twice. The most successful and lasting artists let inspiration steer them, not genre or marketing pitch. I’m just doing what moves me as it comes.”

Watch Lynn and her talented band, including Grange on pedal steel and guitarist Ben Lewis, in the Letterman clip below.

Posted:

Is David Letterman joining Interpol? Probably not, but the host of The Late Show definitely asked the New York-based quartet this week if he could join the band when they stopped by the Ed Sullivan Theatre.

Letterman posed his question after Interpol performed their hot new single, “All the Rage Back Home,” which comes off the 2014 album El Pintor.
“Can I be in the band? Do you mind?” he asked both Paul Banks and Sam Fogarino, and then repeatedly stated, “I’m going to be in the band.”
Check out Interpol in action and a very excited Letterman below.
