We've already had the pleasure of seeing The National perform two tracks on late night TV with this week with performances on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Just in case you'd somehow forgotten about them though, last night they played Conan and gave us another spine tingling rendition of "This Is the Last Time". In case you missed it, hit play above.
Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros continue to support their new self-titled album with another late-night performance. This time they visited Conan O'Brien's eponymous show, performing the lead single from the LP, "Better Days." The whole band made it out for this one.
Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros is out now.
The 1975 have come a long, long way since this time last year. From humble beginnings and secretive tracks appearing online, to supporting the likes of Muse and The Rolling Stones this year. They've now travelled the world and are currently across the Atlantic over in the States, during which they've made their American TV debut with a visit to Conan O'Brien's late night slot last night. Playing their track "Chocolate" from the EP IV for the masses watching at home, you can see their to be brilliant performance in all its glory below.
Their highly anticipated self-titled debut album is set for release via Dirty Hit/Polydor on September 9th.
God damn, how did I almost miss this?! SKOA favorites Dale Earnardt Jr. Jr. performed on Conan last week, and it was awesome. Bringing their high-energy sound to Conan O'Brien's show, the duo performed two songs.
The first was "If You Didn't See Me (Then You Weren't On The Dancefloor)," from their Patterns EP that released last April. It sounds fantastic live, especially with the full live suite. Next up was a web exclusive performance of a brand new song titled "War Zone." The track is from DEJJ's upcoming sophomore album and was a great showcase for their ever-expanding sound. With glittering synths, trickling guitar licks, echoing harmones and a smooth saxophone, what's not to enjoy? Check out both performances below.
In between Coachella weekends, Alt-J made their U.S. late night television debut on Conan. Dropping by O'Brien's Burbank studio, the band performed An Awesome Wave highlight "Breezeblocks." The Leeds outfit did a fine job supporting their Mercury Prize-winning debut. Check out their performance below.

Dirty Projectors pulled from their excellent sixth album Swing Lo Magellan during a visit to Conan last night, where they performed album opener "Offspring Are Blank". David Longstreth impresses as always with his malleable voice, expanding and contracting his vocal chords with relative ease. Check out their performance above.
The band's two most recent releases, Swing Lo Magellan and About to Die EP, are available now. As well, the New York outfit will be appearing at numerous festivals in the coming months, including Sasquatch! and Governors Ball.
It was a busy night on the late night TV circuit last night but we're definitely not complaining. Ryan Adams and his trusty acoustic guitar were the performer of choice of Conan and he brought along with him a track that he wrote for Judd Apatow’s This is 40.
