As a music fan, sometimes it just feels good to see a band get exposure on national TV. While Ra Ra Riot doesn’t have as much steam behind it as the band did when it last played Letterman in 2008, that didn’t stop the indie pop sextet from making an impression last night. This time around, Ra Ra Riot chose the most popular track off 2010’s The Orchard, the dancey “Boy”.
It’s sort of annoying that The Late Show decided to film almost the entire performance via rotating closeups of each band member, and more annoying that foxy cellist Alexandra Lawn seemed to get the least face time out of any of them. But the closeups highlighted something one might not otherwise notice — glasses and matching striped shirts. Nerd alert!
