Guess Who's Coming to Late Night: Lambchop To Play Fallon May 25, JEFF the Brotherhood To Play Letterman July 17



Indie-rock veterans and local legends Lambchop aren't strangers to the late-night airwaves. Back in the 20th century, they backed the late, great Vic Chestnutt during a totally stellar Conan appearance (see it after the jump). They returned to the Cone Zone in 2004, though I can't for the life of me find a clip of that one (rumor has it that the 'Chop fellas do, however, have a pretty funny Larry King anecdote as a result of that appearance). Anyway, hot on the heels of blowing the roof off of Nashville's most swingin' VFW hall, the legendary Music City outfit will return to that familiar old network and time slot, when they play Late Night With Jimmy Fallon this Friday, May 25. Fellow guests will include Bill Hader and "Cap" Kareem Abdul Jabbar. Now that's what I call a late-night lineup, volume two.

And since we're on the topic of Nashvillians hitting the late-night circuit, let's talk JEFF the Brotherhood. As I'm sure you'll recall, we at the Cream broke the news that JEFF and their label, Infinity Cat, were inking a deal with Warner Brothers over a year ago. Warner just sent out the official release this month, however — that's why you're seeing Johnny-come-lately bloggers talk about it as though it's fresh news — and amid all the info was this little nugget: "The band's upcoming album Hypnotic Nights ... will be released by Warner Bros. Records on July 17th. The band will perform on The Late Show with David Letterman that night." Hypnotic Nights was, of course, recorded with Black Key Dan Auerbach, and JEFF the Brotherhood's preview EP, Hypnotic Knights, is (as promised) out today. No word on whether or not Fallon vets JEFF will bring a sandwich-nomming buddy along for the late-night ride this time.
