The Arcade Fire has just released the information that they will be appearing on the infamous Saturday Night Live on Saturday, November 13th. Set your old school VCRs so you don’t miss it. Scarlett Johansson will be the host that night. SNL has been lacking on the ‘great’ musical guests this season (in our opinion), but the show has finally redeemed itself. What songs will the band play? Well that’s up in the air for now but here’s crossing our fingers for “Ready to Start.”
Saturday Night Live is getting kind of boring, isn’t it? This season is almost unwatchable with the exception of some great musical guests stopping by. Case in point, French rockers Phoenix graced the stage last Saturday night. It seems the current ‘thing’ on SNL is that when there is a lack of good sketches, the band gets to perform three songs that night. Nice. Phoenix charmed the audience with ‘Lisztomania’, ‘1901’ and ‘Too Young’. The band was really the only reason to watch.
Phoenix will release Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix in the US on May 25th.
