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.

On the other hand, given the time and financial investment it takes to go to the movies these days, and the way films are marketed, is it even possible to go into a big budget holiday release like this without already knowing what it’s about, and having seen most of the pivotal scenes in the trailer and TV spots?
