My Morning Jacket to Perform on Fallon
As they gather material for a new album, My Morning Jacket will perform on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon October 11. Joining the band on stage will be Britney Howard (Alabama Shakes) and Merrill Garbus of tUne-yArDs in honor of their contribution to Red Hot +Fela, a tribute to the late Nigerian musician Fela Kuti. Howard, Garbus and MMJ frontman Jim James collaborated to perform “Trouble Sleep Yanga Wake Am” on the album.
Red Hot + Fela is designed to raise AIDS awareness, and all proceeds from the album will go towards that cause. Fallon airs weeknights at 12:35 A.M.
