The Athens trio tears it up on Letterman. Too bad the clip is slightly marred by the same shitty sound most of these TV shows have for live music because I imagine this was monster in person. Why can’t they figure out how to get good sound on TV soundstages? This isn’t new technology!
Bad ass song though.

That was some hip stuff. Dave seemed generally impressed.
It was cool, and brings up an interesting question: what does Letterman listen to?
Dave obviously has better taste in music than Leno – wonder what’s on his iPod?
“‘Atta boy, nice goin’. God, that was COOL!” Dave’s a funny old man.
I’m going to start using ‘Atta boy, nice goin’ in my everyday conversation.
And don’t forget “Ole!”
love this band!
I just gotta say if you haven’t picked up their latest cd yet….go do it! It rocks!
