Kickin’ Television ::: President Obama + Dave Matthews on Fallon, Florence + the Machine on the Voice and Beirut on Leno
Campaign season is well underway and President Obama is hitting college campuses across the US of A. The POTUS visited Boulder last night and spoke to Coloradans and Americans across the nation about keeping the student loan interest rate locked instead of doubling in July. At some point, the POTUS made his way to the Hill landmark, the Sink (great burgers btw). Check out his “Slow Jam” with the Roots and Jimmy Fallon that would’ve made Isaac Hayes proud.
Dave Matthews was also in on the action recorded from Tarheel Country with Fallon and the POTUS. Matthews sat in with Fallon to serenade the student body with a very apropos number, “Walk of Shame.”
Florence + the Machine’s performances on live television are getting bigger and better, turning the UK artist into the Cirque de Soleil of music with the crazy outfit changes and wispy dancers.
Beirut’s take on “Santa Fe” last night on the Leno was toned down a notch from the album version, but done very gracefully. Maybe it was Zach Condon’s scarf.
