On Monday, St. Vincent stopped by Conan on a night where Kate Beckinsale’s hotness almost blew up my television. Another artist that will be at Coachella 2012 they were introduced and strummed a few chords of an Elvis Costello-ish sounding tune. Then, just when it’s about to break Annie Erin Clark waves her hands in the air demanding the band stop. She then says into the mic “I’m sorry ladies and gentleman, there is no reason to play that song”, before diving into the beautiful track called “Cheerleader”.

Now the only thing this writer knows about St. Vincent is the stuff I read here at Concert Confessions, so I actually had to go listen to the song Cheerleader afterwards to see if this is how the song actually goes, or was that just an audible called at the line of scrimmage last minute. Turns out, it was an audible. Not that “Cheerleader” is filled with F-Bombs or anything, but imagine if it was? How cool would that would’ve been? Either way, the video below should share with you not only the coolness of this band, but also a really bad ass guitar.

Check it out.

Jay Porks here.. I used to be a contributor on here. I\'m a little more than that now. This used to be the place I\'d go spill my rants and raves about artists and music I love and loathe. I still do that. But now I host a weekly podcast to get things off my chest, and since I have you here I\'m gonna tell you about it: Used to talk about fun things like music and pop culture, but these days it\'s all flushing the fascist crime syndicate from 1600 Pennsylvania Ave and taking back our country. A hostile foreign nation installed a corrupt racist rapist fake rich criminal to power and now he holds the nuclear codes. We have a lot of work to do to fix this nation and it starts with VOTING. Sometimes we go through the music headlines of the week along with other things I feel strongly about. Like ending Cannabis Prohibition, the sad state of affairs with the tri-state area sports teams, The struggles of an anti-social mess attempting to live in a social media world.
