TiVo Party Tonight: Neko Case, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, U2

tivocyhsybEver wonder what will happen during the last five minutes of late-night TV talk shows? They let musicians onstage! Here are tonight’s notable performers:

Late Show With David Letterman (CBS): U2
Bono and Co. continue their weeklong run on Letterman. How long until Paul Shaffer assimilates himself into the band?

The Tonight Show With Jay Leno (NBC): Neko Case
If we ran things, tonight’s program would feature a swearing contest between couchguest Gordon Ramsay (face of a bulldog, temperament of a flambé) and Neko Case (voice of an angel, mouth of a sailor). Case will be performing a song from Middle Cyclone, which came out yesterday.

Late Night With Jimmy Fallon (NBC): Clap Your Hands Say Yeah
After much talk of a band hiatus and forthcoming solo projects by frontman Alec Ounsworth, CYHSY reappears on Fallon to play a new song called “Statues.” Head to the band’s website after the program and you’ll be able to download a demo version of the tune.
