Last night’s Late Night With Conan O’Brien was definitely a gem as far as prime time talk shows go. The program offered the amazingly talented and hilarious comedic icon Martin Short as it’s first guest, which would have been reason enough to watch, hadn’t Indianapolis, Indiana’s Margot and the Nuclear So & So’s been the closing musical guest.
Following a hilarious interview with Short, the nine member So & So’s took to the stage in support of their recent and lovely release, Animal/Not Animal!, performing a flawless rendition of “Tales as Tall as Cliffs”, the release’s standout track.For a band that is characterized by some as “chamber pop,” they certainly bring a lot of truth to the label. With more instruments than one could put a name to (there was even a toy piano attached to a guitarist’s back), the group’s performance was a pleasure for both eyes and ears alike.
Watch it here, and seriously, try to name all the instruments:
