Just on the heals of their epic turn at SXSW, The Besnard Lakes will tomorrow, Wednesday, March 23, make their U.S. television network premiere on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, where the band will be burning through the galloping “This Is What We Call Progress,” a cut from their recently released longplayer, The Besnard Lakes Are The Roaring Night.
Umm, and the show will also include guests Janet Jackson (I mean, JANET JACKSON!! Collaboration anyone?) and wrestler/hip-hop artist John Cena. I believe this is what was once known as “must-see television.” Late Night with Jimmy Fallon airs at 12:30 a.m. EST on NBC.
And what’s more is that the good people on Team Fallon are offering a rad opportunity for Besnard Heads — Besnard Ponds? — to be right up front for the band’s performance through the show’s “Band Bench” Sweepstakes. Entering for a chance to win is quite elementary. Click HERE and include the band code “BES” in your entry form. Once complete, you will have a chance to sit courtside for this most excellent occasion.
Following Fallon, The Besnard Lakes will set forth on an intercontinental, musical journey that will see them across UK, Europe and all of North America. See all those forthcoming dates HERE.
