the shins on leno and a sounds eclectic evening
last night the shins made their latest (last?) appearance on the late night circuit in support of wincing the night away, appearing on the tonight show while in town for the kcrw a sounds eclectic evening show happening tonight. they played "australia" this time, thankfully resisting the temptation/demand to play the same song on each late night appearance. that they can play so many different songs off the album speaks to how complete an effort it is, and how great it is to see them getting some well-deserved recognition.
as for the kcrw show, the shins are headlining along with lily allen (hopefully), rodrigo y gabriela, cold war kids, and bitter:sweet. there are always surprise guests, but for the first time in years i don't have a clue who they might be. but based on just these videos and songs, it looks to be another unforgettable evening no matter who else shows up (although frankly i wasn't impressed with lily allen's performance, which is why i never posted that back in february).
