Random Indie Music Tournament – Round 3 Preview

Right this way

I already wrote all my shit about these bands in round 2, so for round 3, here is each band performing a song on a late night tv show.

Vote here

Arcade Fire on Letterman

What an introduction to the world. Imagine you had never heard them before and that was the performance. So good

White Strips on Letterman

So weird to see Jack White in his White Stripes outfit. Someone once told me Meg White playing drums reminded him of Pebbles from the Flintstones and ever since, I can’t get that image out of my head.

Interpol on Letterman

Interpol + bright lights don’t work, which is weird because their album was called Turn On The Bright Lights. Not the most excited performance, but I guess that’s Interpol’s MO

Arctic Monkeys on Jools Holland

Man, you forget the Arctic Monkeys were KIDS when they released their debut album.

The Strokes on Letterman

These guys, as always, look like they just came out from a marathon run at some dive bar and are about to go right back.

Franz Ferdinand on Conan

Some tidbits from me about Franz Ferdinand:

1. When I heard it for the first time ever, I immediately played it again just to be like, what the hell did I hear?
2. After I heard that song, I retroactively added it to my best of 2003 mp3 compilation and sent it out again to my friends. Why? I don’t know.

LCD Soundsystem on Letterman

I love how the rest of the band was clapping during this performance.

Flaming Lips on Letterman

Where are the mascots?
