News: Yonder Mountain and Matt Morris looking forward to late-night TV performancesBy Ricardo Baca | January 5th, 2010 | 2 comments
Two Colorado acts will be hanging out with some of the largest television audiences of their lives in the coming weeks. That’s right, Boulder-based Yonder Mountain String Band and Denver-based Matt Morris (who is releasing his debut LP on Justin Timberlake’s Tennman Records a week from today) will be hanging with the late-night TV boys in January.
Yonder will hang with Craig Ferguson on “The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson” tonight on CBS, surely playing a track from its “The Show” — the band’s best CD to date. (Listen to the excellent newish tracks “Fingerprint” and “Complicated” here.) The band is fresh off three big New Year’s shows — all of which were reviewed here at Reverb. Check them out here, here and here.
Morris will play the show before Ferguson’s — CBS’s “The Late Show With David Letterman” — in a couple Fridays on Jan. 15. Morris’ “When Everything Breaks Open” comes out a week from today on a record label that was founded by a former mouseketeer buddy of his, Justin Timberlake.
