Les Savy Fav played ‘Seth Meyers’ ahead of Frenchkiss anniversary show (watch)
Les Savy Fav headline the Frenchkiss Records 20th anniversary party on Saturday at Brooklyn club Elsewhere, and to promote the show and the label’s milestone, the band stopped by Late Night with Seth Meyers to perform “Let’s Get Out of Here” from their 2010 album Root for Ruin. (If this seems random, remember that Les Savy Fav bassist and Frenchkiss owner Syd Butler is also a member of Late Night’s 8G Band as is LSF’s Seth Jabour.) Frontman Tim Harrington made the most it, coming out with Aladdin Sane makeup and a suit to match, before tearing that off to reveal a Slim Goodbody style unitard. It will surprise no one who has ever seen the band live that Tim did not keep his antics to the stage. Watch below.
Saturday’s Frenchkiss 20th anniversary show also features performances by The Dodos, Eleanor Friedberger, Diet Cig, Drowners, Twen and special guests. Tickets are still available.
