David Acid Tongue

Jenny Lewis "with special guest Elvis Costello" (he sings the song on her album too) played Letterman last night (Nov 3). David introduced them while holding up the giant sheet of acid, but after they performed their song, Jenny was nowhere to be found and Elvis in turn became the next interviewed guest. They mostly discussed Elvis' new talk show. Elvis said 13 episodes are taped and ready to go (and implied there wouldn't be more than that if the show which debuts on the Sundance Channel on December 3rd is not successful). David seemed sincerely interested from the "you're doing what I do, but different" point of view. Johnathan Rice was also there playing guitar and singing backup. Video of the musical performance below...

White Rabbits in Prospect Park (more by Chris La Putt)
White Rabbits

White Rabbits were en route to Cleveland last year when pianist Stephen Patterson received a call inviting the young Brooklyn septet to perform on The Late Show with David Letterman. "I completely freaked out," Patterson says. "I pulled off at a highway rest stop and we just ran around the van, calling our moms and dads."

Becoming elated over such news is more or less obligatory. Nellie McKay remembers "jumping in the air and doing a kind of flippery arm motion" upon being informed of her first Letterman booking; Spoon frontman Britt Daniel says he was "absolutely shocked" when told that Saturday Night Live had scheduled his band. But at the time of their Late Show invitation, White Rabbits were without a label apparatus, press clippings or even fans. "We got back in the van, drove to Cleveland and played a show for five people," Patterson says. When the day of the taping arrived, the musicians--whose vehicle had been stolen near their Bushwick home--hired a "man with a van" to drive them to the Ed Sullivan Theater. While waiting in the green room, they received another call, this time from their landlord. Their rent was overdue. [Time Out]

Black Kids

Black Kids are playing a free show in a store tonight (July 22, 2008). The occasion is the release of their new record "Partie Traumatic" which is (still) streaming in its entirety at AOL.

Partie Traumatic will be available to purchase at the Virgin Megastore Union Square location from 9:00am. Fans buying a copy of the album at the store will receive a wristband for this very special performance at 7:00pm. The performance will be followed by a CD/LP signing. Time and space are limited, so please arrive early.
Although free, their Virgin set will likely be much shorter in length than the real show they're playing Friday at Santos Party House with Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson. Black Kids will also appear on The Late Show With David Letterman on Thursday.

UPDATE: Pitchfork reviewed the album, sort of....

Updated tour dates below...

The Baseball Project

What happens when two great songwriters decide to focus their talents upon their favorite sport? You get the highly entertaining debut disc from The Baseball Project, Volume One: Frozen Ropes and Dying Quails. The album is the brainchild of Steve Wynn (Dream Syndicate, Steve Wynn and the Miracle 3) and Scott McCaughey (Young Fresh Fellows, Minus 5, and R.E.M). The two musicians were longtime fans of each other's work throughout the 80s but never met until the early 90s. Wynn recalls, "I honestly think the first time we met was side-by-side at the urinals at the Offramp in Seattle when I played there in 1992." He adds, "Scott didn't try to shake my hand."
Stream the entire album now courtesy of Yep Roc. It will be in stores on July 8th. They performed on Letterman last night with drummer Linda Pitmon and R.E.M.'s Peter Buck as the rest of their band. Peter performed at Madison Square Garden a day earlier. Watch the Letterman video below....

DOWNLOAD: Langhorne Slim - Rebel Side of Heaven (MP3)

Langhorne Slim

Langhorne Slim is shooting a video for "Rebel Side of Heaven" this Monday, March 31st at The Box (189 Chrystie, between Rivington & Stanton.)

Simple concept - live video in a beautiful, ornate venue which is being shot by Crackerfarm (who also took the above photo) + Paul Manza. From 2:30 PM until 6:00 PM they want to bring in a little audience for that live show kinda vibe.

We're looking to get about 50+ people down to the venue at about 2:30 PM until appx 6:00 PM. Anyone who's interested in being in the video should send an email to slimvideo@kemado.com and we'll send them the details by Friday afternoon or Monday morning.

Langhorne Slim also plays Maxwell's in Hoboken tonight (March 29), Music Hall of Williamsburg on April 28th, and Mercury Lounge two days after that to celebrate his new self-titled CD (out April 29). All tour dates, and a video of his recent network television debut, below....
