Late Night Pick of the Night: Freddie Gibbs & Death

Let's head out to the fringes tonight on Last Call with Carson Daly at 1:35 AM on NBC.  Two acts on there tonight.  The first is new gangsta rapper Freddie Gibbs who the LA Times says "boasts the rare ability to be both crude & refined."  Then, check out proto-punk band Death.  They were formed by three brothers who hail from Detroit in 1971 and broke up in 1977 after making some much-lauded proto-punk music that few people had heard.  Flash forward to 2009 when their music is released on a new label and two of the brothers (one had died) reform the group to get the acclaim that had eluded them the first time around.
