Late Night Pick of the Night: Wild Flag, Springsteen Tour Dates

On late night tv tonight, one of my favorite new bands of last year, Wild Flag, will perform on a Late Night with Jimmy Fallon repeat.  Late Night is on NBC at 12:35 AM.  Carrie Brownstein of Wild Flag is getting lots of press lately because of her IFC TV show, Portlandia, but she's heading out on tour with Wild Flag now (no Richmond dates :-(  ) and the band kicks ass.

Bruce Springsteen announced tour dates with the E Street Band today.  Closest show is DC on Sunday, April 1.  Not sure if I want to deal with DC to see the shows, but the early rumor is that the second leg of the tour will be stadiums and since we don't have a stadium, he'd probably just play in DC again and I don't want to see him in a stadium, so I may not have a choice.  Shows & prices weren’t up on Ticketmaster yet, though they linked to the ticket site for the Cleveland show and it looks like Bruce is back to three tier pricing ($42.50, $62.50 and $98.00) instead of all tix at same price.  Also, no replacement, if any, mentioned for Clarence.
