Something Like a Phenomenon

Posted By on 04.05.10 at 02:10 PM

I know it's been said a million times, but I still haven't wrapped my head around the fact that Late Night With Jimmy Fallon is arguably the best showcase of live music on American TV. It's just really difficult to hold the seemingly mutually exclusive concepts of "Jimmy Fallon" and "best [x]" in my mind simultaneously.

After the jump is some must-see footage from Friday night: the first-ever television appearance by seminal New York post-disco act Liquid Liquid, backed up by the Roots and absolutely demolishing their monster jam "Cavern." Ideally the song should have gone on for another ten minutes, but I'm still pretty amped on it.
