The human brain is a very fascinating mechanism. As I’m sure you are aware, the brain has the ability to block painful or embarrassing memories so that they no longer cause stress to the operating systems of the mind and body. The self-regulation is something spectacular; it creates a barrier to keep us all happy and safe. Well, get ready for that barrier to be crushed to oblivion. Are you ready? Plain White T’s. Yep. As you read this the chorus to “Hey There Delilah” is seeping into every facet of your memory and causing a hatred to stir inside of you that you forgot you were capable of. I literally had forgotten anything and everything affiliated with Plain White T’s until I did my weekly digging to see who was playing late night this week. Now I can’t get that damned song out of my head, and I bet I won’t be the only one.
But it’s not all bad news; it never is. Last week was fantastic. For those of you who missed it: get your Interpol on here, and your of Montreal on here ASAP. This week holds much promise itself with appearances by The Dead Weather, Spoon, and Queens of the Stone Age (could this be the hint that the Them Crooked Vultures wagon has run its course?). Too much rock and roll you say? Never fear. Nas & Damien Marley and K’naan will keep your hip hop fed, and The Black Crowes will be there to quench your thirst for awful music. Twice. Update: Titus Andronicus will be visiting Fallon. Thank you Jeremy Larson.
Heres your Late Night Lobotomy.

Stay tuned, folks!
