THOM YORKE plays Barclays Center (with Flea) tonight/Friday with James Holden who then opens for Thom's good friend Four Tet in Williamsburg on Saturday, two days before Thom Yorke's good friend Flying Lotus plays Le Poisson Rouge (where Thom Yorke last played NYC, though Thom will be in Virgina by then).

ARCADE FIRE play Saturday Night Live (with Tina Fey) and a show after SNL Saturday, and then maybe will be around for the premiere of the Spike Jonze movie they soundtracked (along with Karen O) as part of the New York Film Festival, or related events (though "Her" doesn't actually premiere until the end of the film fest which runs through October 13). Superchunk, led by Arcade Fire's Merge Record label boss Mac, are also conveniently in NYC for the weekend.

JACK WHITE is on the lineup of Sunday's "Inside Llewyn Davis" event at Town Hall, another NY Film Fest related event (that Patti Smith, Colin Meloy of The Decemberists, Conor Oberst, Joan Baez, Marcus Mumford, Gillian Welch & David Rawlings, Punch Brothers, and the Avett Brothers are also playing) (if you miss it, it's being recorded for Showtime).

BONUS: Guy Picciotto (Fugazi), Jim White (Dirty Three), T. Griffin (The Quavers), Efrim Manuel Menuck and Sophie Trudeau (Godspeed You! Black Emperor), Jessica Moss (Thee Silver Mt. Zion), and Mira Billotte (of White Magic) are all at BAM Saturday night, Massive Attack, Horace Andy and Cocteau Twins singer Liz Fraser are at Park Ave Armory for multiple days, John Zorn is having a birthday party with Mike Patton and more, Eugene Mirman is having a comedy festival, Jimmy Cliff is at Webster Hall, and Stevie Wonder, Kings of Leon, Elvis Costello and more are playing in Central Park Saturday.

The possibilities are endless.

Watch the Arcade Fire's SNL teaser video and a teaser for the post-SNL show, below (see if you can decode the clues in Win's shirt to discover the location of Thom, Win and Jack's secret meeting)...

Kidney

After meeting his biological father for the first time, GE powerhouse Jack Donaghy discovered his dad, professor Milton Greene, needed a kidney. Not being a potential organ donor himself, Mr. Donaghy turned to some very affluent friends in the entertainment world. This partnership created the phenomenon, "Kidney Now!' -- a benefit concert featuring some of the most recognizable names in the music industry. With the help of this song, Milton Green just might find the kidney match he needs and Jack Donaghy may be granted the gift of a father he never knew.

White StripesConan O'Brien's last show in his old time slot was Friday night. A drumless White Stripes were the musical guest.

Conan won't be gone for long though. He takes over Jay Leno's slot, one hour earlier, on June 1st. Jay Leno airs his final show in his current time slot on May 29th, and then eventually moves to 10 pm on the same station.

Jimmy Fallon takes over Conan's NBC time slot on March 2nd. His house band The Roots take over NYC around the same time. Fallon's guest have started to be announced...

If Jimmy Fallon is nervous about the premiere of his new gig as "Late Night" host, he'll have Robert De Niro and Van Morrison to lean on. They'll be the guests for his March 2 debut hosting the NBC show...

NBC says Tina Fey, Jon Bon Jovi, Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, Donald Trump and Serena Williams are among other guests scheduled for Fallon's first week. [Vindy.com]

U2U2 will be the first band to play five nights in a row on Letterman that same week. "Coinciding with the worldwide release of [their new album] No Line on the Horizon, it's the first time a musical guest has performed an entire week on the CBS late night broadcast." That new album is now streaming in its entirety at MySpace.

Van Morrison's Fallon appearance comes soon after his two shows at the Theater at MSG, and right before the two at the Beacon.

The video from Joaquin Phoenix's recent, infamous appearance on Letterman, below...

Seth Meyers on strike - November 5, 2007 (CRED)
SNL on Strike

He (Lorne Michaels) is wary about what is going to happen this weekend when this venerable sketch show returns after more than three months. So for Saturday's return he has enlisted Tina Fey, an "SNL" alum, and the country singer Carrie Underwood............Mr. Michaels said that even with her familiarity with the show, he picked Ms. Fey as host because "it was just the right time for her." He noted that she had won a Golden Globe, a Screen Actors Guild award and a Producers Guild award in recent months, "all in stealth fashion." Next week's host is Ellen Page, star of the Oscar-nominated film "Juno." After that things get murky until May when Shia LeBoeuf and Steve Carell are committed, largely because both have films ("Indiana Jones" for Mr. LeBoeuf and "Get Smart" for Mr. Carell) opening this spring. [NY Times]
Then Sunday night is the Oscars where it will be a battle between "No Country For Old Men" and "There Will Be Blood", though according to the Guardian..
If the general public had any say in the matter, this year's best picture Oscar would go to Juno rather than joint favourites There Will be Blood and No Country For Old Men. For good measure, 20-year-old Ellen Page would scoop the best actress award while Johnny Depp would be named best actor for his turn in Sweeney Todd. Each is considered a long shot, at best, to win an Oscar this Sunday.

SNL Writers STrike.

The writers strike (as seen in the photo above) has caused two NYC shows to look for a new home. That means 150 lucky people are going to see a live performance of Saturday Night Live at the UCB Theatre, and another 150 will get to see 30 Rock.

Proceeds from the sale of tickets to "30 Rock" - priced at a modest $20 - will go to the Writers Guild strike fund, the Web site says.

The writers' strike, which began 10 days ago, immediately shut down production of "SNL" and "30 Rock" because so many of the stars also write the shows. [NY Post] (via)

The 30 Rock listing says some people will get in at the door. Good luck with that.

For a more sure bet, stop by the UCB at 9:30 tonight for a performance of the Dave Hill Explosion with special guests Lady Bunny and Touching You. Tickets are still available.
