I'm Feeling Young

I rarely watch Late Night With Conan O'Brien, but the winding-down of the winter TV schedule left us bored enough to tune in sometime in early April. The musical guest was Hot Hot Heat. I'd recently found out they were Canadian, so I decided to watch. As it turned out, their live performance was almost crazily impressive.

I realize that a band can really turn on the energy for one whole song in front of a studio audience with guaranteed applause, but DANG those guys just had some amazing something that busted right through my TV set. What is it? I don't know, but I'm actually going to pay for their new album, which is really something when you think about how much "free" music I've acquired over the years.
