It isn’t often a late night program features two different music artists on one night. But as we’ve come to learn over the last year or so, Jimmy Fallon has the ability to pull off just about anything. Case in point the May 5th, 2010 episode of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, where J-Fal welcomed both Roger Waters and The New Pornographers to the program. Of course, the former didn’t actually perform, stopping by only to turn Fallon into full-fledged fan boy and discuss his forthcoming Wall tour. The latter, who Fallon introduced as “Canadian Indie Rock Icons,” did play, however, as they looked to support their recently released album Together with a particularly lively, Neko Case-featuring rendition of “Crash Years”. Among things garnered from said rendition of “Crash Years”? Like other “Canadian Indie Rock Icons,” Case, AC Newman, and co. sound as tight and crisp live as they do on record. Plus, they have Peter Bjorn & John-esque whistling skills.
Yep, only on J-Fal.
