TiVo Party Tonight: Sonic Youth, Rancid, Green Day, Manchester Orchestra

tivosonicEver wonder what will happen during the last five minutes of late-night TV talk shows? Here are tonight’s notable performers:

Late Show With David Letterman (CBS): Sonic Youth
Dave will host Sonic Youth tonight in celebration of the release of its 17th studio album, The Eternal. Fun Fact: SY made its television debut on Letterman 15 years ago.

The Tonight Show With Conan O’Brien (NBC): Rancid
According to oversized red-headed Bostonians, punk’s not dead. Rancid will be promoting its new album, Let The Dominoes Fall. Let’s hope this one is indestructible.

Last Call With Carson Daly (NBC): Green Day
Green Day will once again grace us with its anti-media presence on another network late-night show to promote
21st Century Breakdown. So go on, take one more look at the band we hate to love.

Late Night With Jimmy Fallon (NBC): Manchester Orchestra
Manchester Orchestra has wrapped up its U.S. tour and is preparing to ship back to the U.K. but not without first receiving a sendoff from Jimmy Fallon. Perhaps the band will replicate its explosive Letterman performance of “I’ve Got Friends” from its latest, Mean Everything To Nothing.
