Stepping out from behind her keyboards to front the band, Sarah Barthels led Saratoga-spawned electro-popsters Phantogram through their new song, “Black Out Days,” in the band’s return appearance on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” last Friday night (October 4). Phantogram’s self-titled, four-song EP was released earlier in the week…


Phantogram On Fallon

In case you missed the national network television debut of Saratoga Springs electro-pop duo Phantogram on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” last night, here it is:

The song is “Mouthful of Diamonds,” the lead-off track from Phantogram’s debut album “Eyelid Movies.” For the performance, vocalist-keyboardist Sarah Barthel and guitarist Josh Carter are joined by drummer ?uestlove of the Roots, house band for Fallon’s show.

Fallon introduced Phantogram as “one of my favorite new bands.” But what we really want to know is just WTF Sarah was chatting about with Larry the Cable Guy after the tune. Discussing current events in Egypt? Complaining about the weather? Placing bets on the Super Bowl?

The week’s only half over and Nippertown has been transformed into Media-Celebrity town.

We mentioned earlier that Sgt. Dunbar and the Hobo Banned were featured in an article in Sunday’s New York Times, discussing their experience using Kickstarter to raise funds to get them to SXSW last month.

Then commenter Mike H chimed in with the news that Jason Martin briefly met French first lady (and chanteuse) Carla Bruni-Sarkozy at his NYU studio and showed her a video of a French poodle in a military uniform. The New Yorker was there to write about it. (UPDATE: via Paul Rapp, here’s a link to the video Jason showed Carla Bruni-Sarkozy [Youtube].)

And then last night, hometown heroine Erin Harkes and her brand spankin’ new band – or should that be her brand new spankin’ band? – made their national television debut on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.” Yeah, you read that right…

Flashback: Jimmy Fallon’s TV Debut

November 19th, 2009, 11:44 am by Greg

When he steps into the spotlight at The Egg in Albany on Saturday night, Jimmy Fallon will be making his first stand-up appearance in Nippertown since he landed his own TV show.

But, of course, Fallon is no stranger to the Capital Region. He attended the College of Saint Rose, worked as a receptionist at Metroland magazine and made his television debut as “Donkey Boy” on the 30-minute sketch-comedy show, “Metroland’s Loose Camera,” which was broadcast on Fox-23 in September 1994:

Wouldn’t it be a kick if he reprised his classic “Donkey Boy” at The Egg on Saturday? Oh yeah…
