FRED ARMISEN TO LEAD SETH MEYERS' LATE NIGHT BAND
When Seth Meyers takes over Late Night on February 24th he's going to have an old friend leading his band. Former SNL and current Portlandia cast member Fred Armisen will be leading a band that consists of Seth Jabour and Syd Butler of Les Savy Fav, Eli Janney of Girls Against Boys, and Kim Thompson from Beyonce's band. Nice pedigree for the band!
The addition of Armisen to the Late Night family is pretty exciting. He has mad comedy chops, and he's never been bashful about using music in his material. It can only help matters to have a familiar face in Seth's band.
By the way, Portlandia starts on February 27th. Have you seen this yet?
