Joanna Newsom on Kimmel last night
"Arcade Fire will appear on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart tonight [August 12th]. They'll perform "Ready to Start" from their new album The Suburbs which is currently the # 1 record in the country!
The Daily Show with Jon Stewart airs on Comedy Central at 11 PM EDT / 10 PM CST. Check your local listings for channel information and set your DVRs.
The Suburbs is available on CD, dbl-LP and digital download (with special digital artwork) in the Merge store."

As pointed out before, Versus also have a new album and they'll be celebrating at the intimate Rock Shop tonight (8/12). Go see the show and set your DVR for the Arcade Fire segment.
