Finally, the moment hipsters and hipsteriographers alike have been waiting for all year: the unlikely return of the emancipated sound-slave himself, Chris Cornell! In lesser news, Animal Collective plays Letterman. It’s a good week for the Pitchfork cabal all around, with Ohio players, The National, on Fallon Wednesday, and scot-rockers Franz Ferdinand on Letterman Tuesday. But my bet is that soulstress Sharon Jones and her Dap-Kings steal the show, this week; you know ?uestlove is gonna get involved.
Monday: Keri Hilson brings her sexy haircut, along with Kanye West, to Letterman; Adele does Fallon.
Tuesday: Franz Ferdinand do Letterman; Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings do their best to expunge Amy Winehouse from our collective unconscious on Jimmy Fallon.
Wednesday: Ben Harper and the Relentless 7 do Letterman; some Irish dude named Van Morrison does Leno; and The National play out Fallon.
Thursday: The Animal Collective do their thing on Letterman; Ben Harper and the Relentless 7 try again on Fallon.
Friday: finally, ex-Soundgarden, ex-Audioslave frontman, Chris Cornell, plays Letterman.
