Tonight Desaparecidos joins a tradition that includes Bright Eyes, The Faint, Tilly and the Wall and Cursive by performing live on a nationally televised late-night chat show.

This time it’s Late Night with Seth Meyers. For frontman Conor Oberst, tonight’s performance will be old hat. He’s been doing the late night circuit for a decade. And Denver Dalley was on Jimmy Fallon’s show as part of a Har Mar Superstar performance in 2009. As for the rest of the band, I’m not sure. Matt Baum may have been part of Bright Eyes during one of those broadcasts. Ian? No idea. I’m pretty sure Landon and the rest of Little Brazil have yet to grace the national television airwaves.

Regardless, these late night TV appearances are always a moment of pride for all of us back here in flyover country. If you’re awake, tune in (or set your DVR). Also on the program, which airs at 11:30 p.m. CT on NBC, are male stripper Channing Tatum and Orange is the New Black‘s Laverne Cox.

Another place to watch the show is on the TVs at fabulous O’Leaver’s, where tonight Semicircle is headlining. The band includes members of Reptar. Opening is Lineman’s Rodeo and Thick Paint (also members of Reptar). $5, 9:30 p.m.
