Ever 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): Franz Ferdinand
We’ve been admiring Franz Ferdinand’s current U.S. tour from a distance; mainly via drummer Paul Thomson’s excellent tour diary, which consists mainly of hamburger reviews. What a joy to see America’s finest burger stands through a Scotsman’s eyes: the vintage ’50s road signs, the pickles, the discovery. It’s like childhood all over again. Speaking of rediscovery, a dub version of Tonight: Franz Ferdinand (titled Blood) is arriving June 1.
