3 Late Show Performances You Missed Last Night: Weezer, Purity Ring and Margo Price
There were a lot of quality late night performances last night including Weezer performing hits from the upcoming White Album, Purity Ring playing "Repetition" on Conan and the new Nashville star to watch, Margo Price, on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.
Instead of scouring the Internet for them all, here they all are in one place.
Margo Price is the one you'll want to pay the most attention to, as she's a fast rising country star waiting to breakout in Kacey Musgraves-esque style. Last night was her television debut and she played it with style. Sounding like a young Americana fueled version of Bonnie Raitt, Price performed "Hurtin' (On The Bottle)" for Colbert off her debut album Midwest Farmer's Daughter, which is set for release March 25. Watch her performance below.
The big news from the late night circuit last night was Conan's announcement of the Bonnaroo 2016 lineup. However, the leaks before the official release made it less than exciting.
Still, Conan managed to snag Purity Ring for a performance of "Repetition" off 2015's Another Eternity, which Music Times listed as one of its top 10 albums of the year. Complete with the duo's signature diamond light display they use during the group's live performance, Megan James sang center stage in a ghostly looking princess outfit on and surrounded by a foggy, mystical forest scene. Check it out below.
Fans are going to get a lot more Weezer in the coming months with the release of the bands self titled album, ostensibly known as The White Album, just around the corner. They performed the same two songs -- "Thank God For Girls" and "Let's Get High" -- on the live sitcom show, Undatable, last week, but far fewer people probably saw that than will see the band's performance on Kimmel. Watch the two songs below.
