Just a quick reminder: Tonight and tomorrow night, two of Denver's most high profile exports will be invading the small screen. Tonight at 11:35 mountain time, DeVotchKa is slated to appear on Late Night with Conan O'Brien on NBC.
Tomorrow night, meanwhile, on the same channel at 12:35 a.m. our time, Flobots will be making their televised debut on Last Call with Carson Daly -- and that's contrary to our previous report that the group's appearance would be tonight. The confusion stems from a post on Flobot's Myspace page touting the performance as happening on Monday, May 19. As it turns out, near as we can tell from this site in which tickets can be procured, the performance is presumably being taped this evening for broadcast tomorrow (or Wednesday morning, as it were).
On a related note, tomorrow evening at 6 p.m. Los Angeles time, to commemorate Universal's re-release of Fight with Tools, the outfit will be performing in the courtyard of the Virgin Megastore on Hollywood and Highland, followed by an in-store signing at the retail outlet. Area fans who purchase a copy of the disc will reportedly receive a wristband that will earn them a signed copy of the disc.
