PSY joined Madonna onstage to perform a Gangnam Style mash up at her Madison Square Garden show on Tuesday.
This begs the question: which attention-whore are you most tired off, PSY or Madonna?

The Walkmen Perform 'Heartbreaker' on Letterman
I dig that one song from The Walkmen YOU GOT SOME NERVE TO BE ASKING A FAVOR. I think those are the lyrics. Whatever, they are critically acclaimed, Letterman said so. So enough of my rambling, here are The Walkmen performing Heartbreaker on David Letterman’s Late Night TV Show (spoiler alert – it’s not as cool as the song I butchered above).

Toadies/Helmet (w/ Ume) 08/02/2012
Webster Hall – New York City
Words/Photos/Videos By Jay Porks
I can honestly say that I've been waiting to see the Toadies again since Sept 2010, the 1st and only time I saw them live. So when news broke right here at Concert Confessions that they were to co-Headline tour with Helmet I was more than stoked. Helmet too? It's impossible for one not to be pumped for something like this, and a promise that can hopefully be fulfilled in these ... Read More

On tonight's edition of The Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert announced to the world the return of his long running, one year old, week long celebration of music, the Colbchella concert series. For last years StePhest Colbchella '011: Rock You Like a Thirst-Icane Presented by Dr. Pepper, we were given performances by Bon Iver, Florence and the Machine and Talib Kweli with Yasiin Bey (A.K.A.

Jimmy Cliff Gives The Crowd 'One More" On Letterman
Last night on late night TV it was Senior Talent Show Night. We already shared with you The Beach Boys performing on Leno (and if you look at the user comments we are apparently assholes for speaking the truth). Now we keep the geriatric beach jams alive and kicking with Jimmy Cliff live on Letterman. The living reggae legend hands down wins the contest with a smoking take on One More. Check it out ...

Tenacious D Perform 'Roadie' on Letterman
Easily entertained is how I would describe the majority of fans of music I run into.
That being said, last night Tenacious D stopped by the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City to play a boring song to a crowd that loved it. Maybe it's because I don't find Jack Black funny in most of his flicks that I don't get this band. But I don't care if they brought John Bonham and Jimi Hendrix back from the dead ... Read More

Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros Do Their Thing on Letterman
It’s shit like this that keeps me out of Silver Lake as much as possible. I mean what the fuck is going on here? I assume the drummer failed with 3-4 bands with names like To Write Love On The Sickest Kids or Pierce The Maya. Is that the oldest Hanson brother on guitar? Oh and hey check out the front man, who I can only assume is Edward Sharpe, but no ... Read More

The War on Drugs Pay David Letterman A Visit
Back in January our pal Jay Porks decided to post The War on Drugs appearance on the Jimmy Fallon program because they have an awesome name. We really dug the jam (which NBC has since removed). Thankfully, the band (who we also gave away tickets to see in Hollywood) has once again showed up on a late night television talk show. This time they paid David Letterman a visit and you can watch their ... Read More

Trampled By Turtles Live on Letterman
Trampled By Turtles have a cool band name. I have never heard their music. As I type this, Letterman is reading the intro and letting us know where they are from. Hmmmm yeah as this starts I suppose I was looking for something a lil heavier based off the name but that is what you get when you judge a book by its cover. Oh wait, now it’s getting heavier. Well as heavy as you can get ... Read More

Kaiser Chiefs Perform 'On The Run' For David Letterman
We admit, with only Reverend Justito hitting Coachella from our tribe this weekend we will be missing the Kaiser Chiefs. Can you blame him, they are playing at the same time at The Buzzcocks and he has yet discovered how to be in multiple places at the same time. So to apologize for our lack of Kaiser Chiefs Coachella coverage, we will share with you their performance on Late Night with David Letterman from ... Read More

New York City brace yourselves, we finally got ourselves a good festival. It's called Catalpa , and taking place July 28th and 29th at Randall's Island Park in NYC.
Who are the headliners you ask?
The Black Keys, TV On The Radio, and Snoop Dogg (Performing 1993's Doggystyle in it's entirety). With a full announcement of artists to come soon, I'm pretty sure this is one all of us in the New York City area need to check out.
Weekend Early Bird Passes start at $99. ... Read More

Jack White Makes His Solo Network Debut on Saturday Night Live
Jack White is one of the undisputed champions of rock and roll. He's jammed with Jimmy Page and The Edge, recorded with Danger Mouse, and led one of the most unlikely groups to massive mainstream success. With last year's break up of The White Stripes, and the upcoming release of his solo debut Blunderbuss, White performed two new songs on Saturday Night Live. So below here's "Love Interruption" and "Sixteen Saltines" ... Read More

In a few minutes my television is going to show “Neil Young” and Bruce Springsteen cover LMFAO’s Sexy and I Know It on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. Yet thanks to Al Gore’s wonderful invention we are able to share it with you right now. It’s pretty damn amazing.
As Bruce Week wraps on the late night talk show, Springsteen and the E Street Band performed three songs with the help of special guests Tom Morello and The Roots. Head over to our ... Read More

White Rabbits Kicks Off US Tour With David Letterman Appearance
We often tune into late night television to discover new (errrrr new to us) groups. Our latest discovery is the Brooklyn based rock and roll group known as White Rabbits. Pretty much everything you would expect from a band from Brooklyn – bad haircuts, vintage guitars and plaid shirt. Oh and those lil mini keyboards that are all the rage these days. Well regardless of the look, the group performed “Temporary” which is ... Read More

There's a venue in New York City located at 204 Varick Street called S.O.B.'s that will probably not show up in any more Jay Porks Experiences... We're here for DMX's Return To New York City Presented by Ghetto Metal ( Twitter: @ghettometal) tonight. The SOLD OUT S.O.B.'s I should say, as the tickets for this 400 person capacity venue are gone. I remember in High School circa 2000 when I was introduced to DMX in ... Read More

After their live stream from NYC's Terminal 5 the other night, while in town I guess it made sense for Brooklyn's own Sleigh Bells to make a stop at 30 Rockefeller Center to perform on Saturday Night Live.
Turned on NBC just in time to catch "Comeback Kid" first, then later on in the evening play "End of the Line".
Sorry we don't have a play by play synopsis of skits we thought were funny, this writer hasn't found SNL to be amusing in ... Read More

Primus Performs For Jimmy Fallon
We here at Concert Confessions love Primus so damn much that we no longer scream that they suck per the request of Les Claypool. It is always a treat when the boys from the East Bay appear on National Television. As you may recall we shared with you a past performance from Jimmy Kimmel Live, but today the east coast gets some Primus television love. The band stopped into the NBC Studios last night to rock out with ... Read More

Die Antwoord Get "Freeky" On Letterman
There are two types of people in this world: the people who love South African rave-rap trio Die Antwoord, and those who hate them. There is no in between, except the grey area featuring those who've never heard Die Antwoord.
The latest ridiculously bizarre Internet sensations to make their way into the part of a person's brain that asks questions have also made their way onto primetime television.
They played their newest single "I Fink U Freeky" from their ... Read More

On the same evening that New York Jets Running Back Curtis Martin get's elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, can you believe that's only the second best thing that happened today? Well, The 64th installment of the Jay Pork Never Ending Concert Series may have had something to do with that. Tonight brings us to Irving Plaza in NYC for an epic evening with The Darkness! Along with Foxy Shazam (Which 'thenaturalstoner' praises for their latest stellar release), and I ... Read More

Joseph Arthur Rocks The Late Show With David Letterman
In the day and age of embedded video, it is rare I ever tune into late night Television to catch a musical artist. However the moment I heard that Concert Confessions favorite Joseph Arthur would be a guest of David Letterman, I made sure to sit my ass down on the couch around 12:15 am PST to catch one of the brightest artists to emerge over the past 25 years.
Supporting his just released FREE ... Read More

Tis the season for giving, and if you're this writer, receiving. When given the opportunity to be bought into Phish tonight for their first of a 4 night New Years Eve at Madison Square Garden, how could I pass it up? Before anything goes further we must slurp the Revered Justito, who gifts me with this ticket to the show tonight (and note that his holiday gift is to be mailed shortly), gifts me with the chance to see Phish. I've heard ... Read More

The 62nd Edition of the Jay Porks Never Ending Concert Series is a special one indeed for a couple of reasons. One, we're heading out to the Bowery Electric (Joey Ramone Pl & 3rd St) down in the East Village for a charity event benefiting the Toys for Tots Foundation( ) featuring the musical styling of Joseph Arthur (and opener James Maddock). Never a bad thing to gain some good karma. Second reason this is special, it's because I've officially taken a ... Read More
