Late Night Roundup | Jeff Tweedy, Jason Isbell, Lake Street Dive & Mac DeMarco

Watch some of Tomorrow’s Verse’s favorite bands hit the promotional late-night television circuit.

Jeff Tweedy on Late Night With Seth Myers

Having recently released Together At Last, a solo record that re-imagines songs from past albums, Jeff Tweedy stopped by Late Night With Seth Myers twice this week to perform acoustic renditions of Wilco classics. First was a beautiful, fragile version of “I Am Trying To Break Your Heart,” which remains pretty true to the original. Tweedy then returned the following night for “I’m Always In Love,” which is given a more atmospheric, downbeat treatment.

Jason Isbell on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert

This performance of “Hope The High Road” demonstrates exactly why Jason Isbell is on top of the alternative-country game. Personal lyrics and an emotional delivery are matched by a climactic blend of distorted guitars, soaring solos, splashing drums and vocal harmonies. It’s an extremely powerful performance for late night TV.

Lake Street Dive on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert

Colbert hosted Lake Street Dive for a rousing rendition of “Close To Me.” The song centers on gorgeous vocals, with active drumming and upright bass augmenting the refined, conscious guitar work. With only four members, it’s an extremely moving performance.

Mac DeMarco on Conan

Indie singer-songwriter Mac DeMarco’s late-night television performance is just as weird as fans would hope. Utilizing the trippy, atmospheric keyboards and guitar effects as his recent album is built from, his band covers the textured instrumental while he sticks to vocals. The performance underlines exactly how unique DeMarco is.
