(Letterman: no stranger to the power of the beard!)
We are proud to announce Phosphorescent’s late night television debut! December 9 Phosphorescent will be the musical guest on The Late Show with David Letterman!
This is the perfect end to an amazing year for Phosphorescent. The year began with a personal invite from David Gray to join him on tour in both Europe and the U.S. In May, Here’s To Taking It Easy was released to huge acclaim from NPR’s World Cafe, Mojo, Paste, Filter, American Songwriter, Rolling Stone, Spin, Pitchfork, and many more. The rest of the year has been filled with non-stop worldwide touring, including the band’s current dates opening for The National in Europe.
Just this week both Mojo and Paste Magazine have named Here’s To Taking It Easy, their #8 album of 2010, and now on the eve of Phosphorescent’s final show of the year, December 10 at the Bowery Ballroom in New York, we’re able to announce that Phosphorescent’s return to New York will be even more triumphant with the news that they will perform on The Late Show with David Letterman on December 9. Normally, adding another show this late in a year that has seen Phosphorescent spend months on the road would be an impossibility, but I think we’ll make an exception in the case of Mr. Letterman! Thank you Dave!
