Noisey published an article a few days ago examining some of the most memorable performances that have graced our TV’s over the years and I thought it was interesting to ponder, especially given the amount of late night talk shows and awards shows I watch pretty regularly.
There’s a sort of emotional disconnect you feel watching it from your couch as opposed to getting caught up in the energy of the crowd, so I think it takes a little extra for a band/artist to make a solid impression. Anyone have anything that had an impact on them? Do you think we could stand to see more programming with a Musical focus? Are you a staunch believer in the purity of the live performance and concert experience?
Oh and to kick it off I’d have to go with this King Krule performance on Letterman from a few years back. I remember I was reading something and had the TV on in the background and immediately turned it up and started paying attention when I heard his voice. Something genuinely unique and captivating about it. Been a fan ever since.
