Our favorite late night music show is Last Call with Carson Daly. Every episode has a cool spotlight feature on a little known artist (musical or not) that’s about to explode and a great live performance. This is all possible because of the addition of music producer Davis Powers who’s in charge of all the music that you see on the show. We recently spoke with Davis all about the show (our interview will be available later this week) and asked him about his top 5 moments of 2010 from Last Call. Check them out below (with video proof!)
1. Fitz and The Tantrums performing “Money Grabber”: We captured the band at their big homecoming show at The El Rey Theatre. The crowd was so electric and Fitz had them at his fingertips–just check out the video..
3. A Perfect Circle performing “The Noose”: We worked closely with Maynard to collaborate on the look and feel of this shoot. Everything totally translated and Maynard even sat down with Carson for a rare interview.
4. Built to Spill making their second ever TV appearance with us: I have been a life long fan and jumped at the opportunity to pitch them appearing on the show. Doug and the gang couldnt have been nicer and they played a very memorable set that night that we were lucky enough to capture.
5. Carson interviewing Tift Merritt: This was one of the first interviews Carson did when I became the music booker. He didnt even blink when I pitched her and he was so passionate about highlighting her talents and giving her some much deserved airtime, I knew I had landed at the right show..
