Yeasayer Debut New Song on Conan

Hi Ahmed.

Tonight in Columbus: Yeasayer @ Newport

YouTube Preview Image
MP3: Yeasayer – O.N.E.
Tonight marks the return of Brooklyn-based Yeasayer (and our friend Ahmed Gallab aka Sinkane). It’s been over a year since their last show at Skully’s, but between a new record, constant touring of the world and television appearances, this comes as no surprise.

Odd Blood has received acclaim from multiple reviewers across the US and UK since February and supplied the demand of fans globally, including appearances at prominent festivals like Coachella, Splendour in the Grass, Reading and Latitude. Last month they also released new single “Madder Red,” which features yet another typically strange Yeasayer video. Check it out above.

Opening the show will be Georgian-based Washed Out (stage alias of Ernest Greene), whose chillwave sound has been gaining exposure over the last year. The Newport Music Hall will open its doors at 7pm.

Ahmed Gallab & Will Smith Guest On Dave Letterman Tonight

Columbus,Ohio product and former Deathly Fighter collaberator Ahmed Gallab will be on the David Lettermen TV program performing with his band Of Montreal. I had never heard of Of Montreal before Ahmed joined them because I use the jewelry man and bol from XXL mag as my only sources of information. But when Ahmed joined the group it made me decide to google them. And apperehently they are really big and will be on David Letterman tonight.
Will Smith who fought reptillians in Independence Day after rapping in Philadelphia(no tom hanks) is the other guest.
Dave Lettermen is on at 11:30 pm here in Columbus. Channel Ten I do believe.
