We have an exclusive announcement for all you live-music and indie fans: The Shins have just announced that they’ll be playing Live On Letterman Tuesday, March 20th! The indie rock band has been on our radar ever since the infamous “This song will change your life” Natalie Portman scene in one of our fave movies Garden State. Since then we’ve come to know there music as fun, chill, and nostalgic and they keep releasing better and better albums. Their latest release, Port Of Morrow is scheduled to come out on March 16th, 2012 which will be followed up by their L.O.L. performance on the 20th.
For those of you not lucky enough to live in New York (um, us!) you can catch the live webcast online! In anticipation for their appearance, our friends at CBS sat down with The Shins’ frontman James Mercer to discuss their new album, musicianship, and songwriting. Check it out:
