Bright Eyes plays 'Jejune Stars' on Letterman last night
Bright Eyes played "Jejune Stars" on David Letterman last night, which you can watch above.
It's good to see them on a big show. And with electric guitars and a selection of good musicians rounding out the crew. Though I would have liked to see Laura Burhenn's excellent backing vocals a little higher in the mix.
Anyway, I'm surprised that they picked "Jejune Stars" rather than something a little more Letterman-audience-friendly like "Shell Games." You'd think something - I hate to say poppier, but I probably will - poppier would pull more people in.
But what do I know?
Though, to be honest, I do have to say that "umbrella under my arm" hook gets me every time.
It's not the first time for Bright Eyes on Letterman. They did "Hot Knives" from "Cassadaga" and "Trees Get Wheeled Away" from "Noise Floor."
