Late Night Roundup | Foo Fighters, Nathaniel Rateliff, Leon Bridges & More

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

1. Foo Fighters on Ellen

Dave Grohl and his band stopped by Ellen to deliver a scorching performance of “The Line.” Demonstrating how they’ve become the alternative rock powerhouse they are, this is about as hard as a television performance can rock.

2. Leon Bridges on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert

Shortly after releasing his sophomore album Good Thing, retro soul singer Leon Bridges graced the stage at Colbert’s show, performing “Beyond.” With a new band and a new sound, Bridges’ incredible vocals lead the way through this must-see performance.

3. Car Seat Headrest on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Insanely witty lyricist Will Toledo brought his Car Seat Headrest project to Fallon’s show for a not surprisingly clever performance. Toledo leads the band through “Bodys” wielding only a microphone, a rare sight for the band, and makes quips about having to cut the song short for live TV throughout. Most importantly, the performance absolutely rocks, with Car Seat Headrest continuing to prove themselves one of the best up-and-coming live acts around.

4. Nathaniel Rateliff & The Nightsweats on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert

Retro soul-rocker Nathaniel Rateliff brought his band to Colbert for a scorching version of “You Worry Me.” With a huge horn sound, dirty organs and the high energy of Rateliff himself, the band leaves little not to love.

5. Lake Street Dive on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert

On another soulful performance on Colbert’s show this week, Lake Street Dive brought their single “Good Kisser” for a fun and lively few minutes. Upright bass, organ and guitar back Rachael Price’s incredible vocals for this nostalgic sounding tune.

6. Arctic Monkeys on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and The Late Late Show with James Corden

Having just released the divisive new record Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino, Arctic Monkeys return to late-night television with two performances from the record. The band plays the keyboard-based, lounge sounding “Four Out of Five” for Fallon, and the more upbeat rocker “She Looks Like Fun” for Corden.

7. Kacey Musgraves on Saturday Night Live

Continuing to promote her more pop-oriented third record, Golden Hour, country singer Kacey Musgraves was the performer on this week’s SNL. The performances certainly come off as hugely different than her past work, focusing on simple hooks and less country twang.
