Passion Pit were on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night (7/29) and performed “The Reeling.” I’m not sure if I love this band as much as everyone else at the moment. Do you guys really love them that much? If you do, you should probably go see them on tour with Phoenix (who are also overhyped but hey, I won’t say anything else bad about a band that’s on Daniel Glass’s label). Check out Passion Pit’s performance on Conan below:

Chicago was on the Tonight Show with Conan O Brien last night (7/29). They played their biggest hit “25 or 6 to 4.” I myself had no idea the title of the song or that it was Chicago’s song till I watched it. I’ve heard that bass riff a bunch of times but I’ve never associated it with this song. Some rapper/DJ should go hardcore over this song and mix it up. It would be really tight then. The fact that these guys were on Conan makes me fully realize that Conan’s hosting the old Tonight Show and that the old Conan that we grew to love is pretty much dead. Anyways, check out the video below:

Green Day played another packed show at Madison Square Garden in New York City tonight (7/28). They played for about 2 hours and 50 minutes, which was longer than the previous night’s performance at the same venue. We weren’t there for the first show but we do know that this one was filled with industry booking people like superagent Nick Storch. Anyways, the band played less than half of their new album 21st Century Breakdown(iTunes) leaving off what could’ve been crowd pleasing anthems like “Horseshoes & Handgrenades” and “Peacemaker.” The band did however play a healthy dose of classic hits off of Dookie(iTunes), Nimrod(iTunes), and American Idiot(iTunes). The show even featured crowd surfing by older fans (early 30s-ish) and performances by fans invited onstage. One female fan invited to play guitar took the opportunity to kiss lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong (the cops are checking her ID to see if she’s legal, jk). We don’t have the official setlist but we definitely remember the band playing “She”, “Welcome to Paradise”, “Brain Stew”, “Hitchin a Ride”, “Good Riddance”, “Jesus of Suburbia”, “Boulevard of Broken Dreams”, “21 Guns”, “Know Your Enemy”, “Shout/Earth Angel”, an Operation Ivy song, “American Idiot”, “Macys Day Parade” and “Holiday.” Feel free to update the rest in the comments section (really tired right now). Like we said, we weren’t at the first night but we agree with Billie Joe when he said “the second night is always better!” Right on Billie Joe, enjoy the multitude of pics below the setlist or GO HERE.

Cavo is one of the hottest rock bands of the year. They have their debut album Bright Nights * Dark Days coming out on August 11th on Reprise Records. They have a hit rock radio single “Champagne” (listen Quicktime, Windows Media, iTunes) and the track “Let It Go” was featured in the Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen movie and soundtrack. Here’s a little bit about how the band got their start. The band’s music quickly jumped into rotation among radio stations nationwide simply off of a local St. Louis station playing their EP in 2007. Soon afterward, the band would be opening for major rock bands like Staind and gain the attention of hitmaking producer, David Bendeth (Breaking Benjamin, Paramore). With Bendeth’s help, Cavo signed with Reprise Records in October 2008 and now are preparing their major label debut Bright Nights * Dark Days. The band is currently out on the Crue Fest 2 tour through August. You can see all the dates below the video for “Champagne.” For more on the band, go to cavomusic.com, myspace.com/cavomusic and twitter.com/cavomusic.

The video for The Used’s new single “Blood On My Hands” is out now. It was directed by Lisa Mann and shot at the Linda Vista Hospital in Los Angeles, CA. The story is based on the narrative of front man Bert McCracken’s obsession with a serial killer in a small town mixed in with the band performing. Pretty damn cool. “Blood On My Hands” is the first single off of The Used’s upcoming album Artwork out on September 1st on Reprise Records. Watch the video for “Blood On My Hands” below and go to theused.com and myspace.com/theused for the latest on the band.
