Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks will make their first late night television appearance in four years tonight when they stop by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. The former Pavement frontman and his band will play a number from their excellent new record Mirror Traffic, though it's anyone's guess what song they might choose to play – the first single, "Senator," hinges on the line "what the senator wants is a blowjob," so that probably won't fly with the FCC.


Lenny Kravitz - Late Show with David Letterman, CBS 11:35 p.m.

Jeff Bridges - Tonight Show with Jay Leno, NBC 11:35 a.m

Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks - Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, NBC 12:35 a.m.


Lauren Alaina - Live! with Regis and Kelly, syndicated

Song Stories

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
