1. Jack White on Saturday Night Live
After releasing the rather divisive Boarding House Reach, Jack White brought his new band to SNL for their television debut. Performing “Over and Over and Over” and “Connected By Love,” the band rips through the songs with the energy that White is known for.
2. Jamiroquai on The Late Late Show with James Corden
Funk-rock favorites Jamiroquai just returned to the US for the first time since 2005, and brought an insane performance to James Corden’s show with them. The band performed “Automaton,” with the singer wearing an absurd LED lit helmet. It’s electronic, funky, and about as fun as it gets.
3. John Prine, Sturgill Simpson & Brandi Carlile on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert
Shortly after releasing his excellent new record, The Tree Of Forgiveness, John Prine brought some serious guests with him to Colbert. With Sturgill Simpson on guitar and background vocals and Brandi Carlile gorgeous vocals joining Prine, we can categorize this under ‘late night history.’
4. The War On Drugs on Late Night with Seth Myers
Psychedelic rockers The War On Drugs continue their tireless promotion for their excellent record, A Deeper Understanding, including this stop on Seth Myers’ show. Performing “In Chains,” the band brings saxophone into their dense, trippy sound.
5. I’m With Her on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
I’m With Her, a bluegrass supergroup featuring Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz and Aoife O’Donovan, make classic, organic music leaning on each members incredible musicianship and understanding of the genre. They brought two songs, “I-89” and “See You Around,” to Kimmel’s show, where one can see just how incredible they are.
6. Kacey Musgraves on Ellen
Working hard to promote her recent, more pop-oriented Golden Hour, Kacey Musgraves stopped by Ellen to perform “High Horse” in a disco, glam fashion.
7. Wye Oak on CBS This Morning
Surprisingly, CBS This Morning finds some seriously underrated talent to play on their show, including Wye Oak’s performance this past week. The indie trio brought three songs from their stunning new record, The Louder I Call, The Faster It Runs, combining musicianship with incredible songwriting to truly blow us away.
