Pretty Lights to Play Conan with Talib Kweli and a Live Band Tomorrow Night
Pretty Lights will play with Talib Kweli and a live band tomorrow night on Conan. The producer and his band will perform the song “Around the Block,” which appears on his recently released album A Color Map of the Sun.
According to a post on Break Science’s Facebook page, it seems like the band will, at least, include Break Science’s Adam Deitch and Borham Lee, as well as Soulive/Lettuce guitarist Eric Krasno.
In an interview with Rolling Stone from earlier this year, Pretty Lights revealed that he intended to tour with live band this fall, stating:
What I’m planning on doing is to have a band but still perform as I normally do, and it’s full-on production accented by live musicians. I use the live band to mix, so I go out of a track into a band playing a live break, and then transitioning into electronic production. It’s rock and funk and soul segueing between hip-hop and dub and electronic music, so it’s this multi-genre journey through live and electronic music.
Currently there is no word on whether or not tomorrow night’s live band will be joining Pretty Lights on tour in the fall.
Tomorrow night’s episode of Conan will begin at 11pm ET/ 10pm CT. You can check out a review of A Color Map of the Sun here.
