During one of the obnoxious yet mandatory interviews interrupting the first half hour of Death Cab For Cutie’s hour long performance at the iHeartRadioMusic Theatre, Benjamin Gibbard declared that Los Angeles was neither a villain or a hero on their just released album Kintsugi. As a transplant of this harsh city who has survived upon the sun dried slab of cement for nearly 15 years; those words could not more perfectly sum up the experience of someone who somehow lucked into watching ...

Having already rocked the likes of Kimmel and Leno, the up and coming indie rockers headed over to the Warner Bros. lot in beautiful Burbank to rock it hard for Conan O’Brien. Enjoy Itchin’ On A Photograph (and a ton of cardboard cutouts) down below.

The Avett Brothers on Conan 6/21/12
Hey mofos, while we are all celebrating the Miami Heats triumphant NBA Finals Victory tonight the world famous Avett Brothers were hitting the sauce extra hard with a Lebron James sized rager in their pants on cable tv's Conan show. They came out and slammed everyone in the face with a Conan-erific version of Murder in the City wowzering all in attendance. Concert Confessions favorite Phishbeard really likes these dudes (as does DarbySTL), so strap on a ... Read More

GROUPLOVE Make Jay Leno All Kinds of 'Tongue Tied'
Greetings from the left coast. Reverend Justito here sitting on the bed watching my second favorite baseball team kick the crap out of my all-time favorite baseball team. I can’t hear the Angels play by play team discuss the ass kicking the boys in red are putting upon my Giants because I am listening to GROUPLOVE live on Leno. I can’t lie, I still have not made my mind up on this band despite ... Read More

The Wombats 'Jump Into The Fog' With Conan O'Brien
Despite being almost 33, I will probably get grounded for this but it is so worth it. For a while in high school I started calling my Mother a Wombat. Not sure why really, probably because I was a dumb punk kid. She played along and even embraced the Wombat crossing sign I snuck into her truck at one point. So when I see this band, I automatically think of my Mother, which is ... Read More

Reggie Watts Shares 'Diametrical Oppositionalism' With Conan O'Brien
The fact is if you don’t enjoy Reggie Watts, you don’t have a soul. No, that is not a ginger joke. Yesterday afternoon, Mr. Watts paid a visit to beautiful Burbank California. Home of the Warner Bros. lot, the musical madman brought about 15 different styles of music to the Conan O’Brien television program. From metal to singing about cats like Ryan Adams there is something for everyone in his performance of “Diametrical Oppositionalism.” Check ... Read More

Girls Bring "Love Like A River" to Conan
When a late night host calls a band "critically acclaimed", it usually means I hate them. Most of the time that's just code for "Yea we don't quite know why they're here either".
Finally, this was not the case on Wednesday Night, when the awesome San Francisco boys, known as Girls paid a visit to Late night cable television. They performed the beautiful "Love Like A River"(off 'Father, Son, Holy Ghost') on Conan. In case you missed ... Read More

M. Ward Shares 'Primitive Girls' With Conan
Truth be told for a really long time I thought M. Ward was the dude from Soul Coughing. Then I realized that was actually Mike Doughtry. So this M. Ward guy, he hangs out with Ben Gibbard’s soon to be ex-wife and that Bright Eyes dude and Jim James of My Morning Jacket when he’s not making his own jams. That is where I know him from at least, but let's be real here if he ... Read More

So I was wondering where I heard of this Sharon Van Etten chick before. The name sounded so familiar-then it hit me like a bullet. We here at Concert Confessions teamed up with Live Nation Los Angeles a few weeks ago to give away tickets to Sharon Von Etten w/ The War On Drugs at Avalon in Hollywood, CA March 20th 2012.
So here on the East Coast, hours before that show in Hollywood was set to kick off, Sharon Van ... Read More

Who doesn't love Cake? And I'm talking the food, AND the band.
I myself have been itching to see the boys again ever since an epic night in Central Park. Last night I was not only lucky enough to catch them on Conan a few minutes after Rebecca Romijn mentioned that her first ever "adult dream" was to the likes of Steve Martin, with Steve Martin sitting to her right. Anyway, talk of female ejaculation gets me pumped for anything, including a ... Read More

The Cranberries Pay Jay Leno A Visit
Remember The Cranberries? We had forgotten all about them till the elusive Melorocker confessed about them back in 2009. Well the band is about to drop a new record later this month so they paid a visit to Jay Leno’s show in beautiful Burbank, CA (Editor’s Note: If you ever hit a filming of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno we recommend you grab a bite to eat at Choza Mama across the street from the ...

Wilco Pays Conan O'Brien a Visit
We like Wilco. However Wilco does not like fans with cameras, something about ruining the experience. So it's rare that we go see the band live. Well that and the fact we are still not big enough to get a photo pass from Mr. Tweedy. Rev did write this back when Jay died. Anyways, let’s just get to the reason you came to this post, you want to watch Wilco rock the Warner Bros. lot in beautiful ... Read More

Chris Cornell on the Songbook tour this past year was fun time for a few of us here at Concert Confessions. Back on this writer's birthday, Chris Cornell was set to make an appearance on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. For reasons not made public, (possibly concerning Presidential Psychopath's Ron Paul's guest spot on that same Dec 16th show), the date was moved back to Jan 5th.
So last night, America collectively sat and tuned in(me WITH Ice Cream) to ... Read More

As the Gallagher brothers tour the U.S. and world in separate bands hitting (or having already hit) a town near you-you must admit other than providing epic quotes for internet bloggers like myself to use, when together Oasis is a great band who played great music.
As Liam Gallagher tours with Beady Eye, a band that is essentially the rest of Oasis, Noel Gallagher tours with his own band-Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds.

Fistful of Mercy Team With Tom Morello To Rock Conan
Our founder and spiritual guru Reverend Justito wrote a recap of Fistful of Mercy's appearance on the late night TBS talk show Conan earlier today for the fine folks at Antiquiet who would never, ever in a trillion years allow him to write such a tacky and horrific run on sentence such as the one you are about to finish reading right about ummmmmmmmm now. With Tom Morello in tow, the posse of guitar ... Read More
