Last night Conan O’Brien played with Jack White and other musicians at Third Man Records in Nashville, TN. For most of us who didn’t get to see that performance, it was recorded with old school reel to reel tape recorder and will be put on vinyl. So I guess the people that don’t have vinyl will just have to wait ’til someone rips that vinyl to mp3 and post it online somewhere? If you haven’t seen Conan live yet on tour, you can see him perform at Bonnaroo this weekend!
Conan’s official website blogged about it:
Conan blazed through a rocking setlist of stuff from our Legally Prohibited show – as well as a few other jams that we’ve never done! The energy in the room was incredible: The band lit by a dim red light, the hot Nashville air thick with excitement; the room packed to capacity – it was a scene the likes of which I’ve never experienced. I could totally see this show being something that happened outside under a tent in the South in the 50’s. A very, very cool vibe.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Conan O’Brien may have missed his calling.
The once and future late night television host laid down a scorching set at Jack White’s Third Man Records on Thursday night in Nashville, Tenn., and plans to release a vinyl album of the show.
O’Brien has been touring the country with his band, putting on comedy shows while waiting for his new hosting gig at TBS to start. He left “The Tonight Show” earlier this year after NBC reinstalled former host Jay Leno.
The redheaded host used The Redheaded Stranger Willie Nelson’s “On The Road Again” to poke fun at his situation, singing, “My old show again/I just can’t wait to get my old show again.”
O’Brien’s next stop is Bonnaroo this weekend.
You don’t see Jay Leno doing all this cool stuff now do you? NOPE!
