David Letterman has been on a tear booking musical guests recently (Maybe Fallon's propensity for attracting young hot acts has his feet to the fire a little bit?) and last night continued that trend. Chicago's own The Orwells ripped through a furious version of the title track from their new EP "Who Needs You" and ended up having to collapse in Dave's chair. The host demanded an encore, seeming to be SUPER into it. Then a string breaks, Paul Shaffer gets involved ... and just watch the clip, a lot happens in a short period of time.
The Orwells begin a national tour later this month before returning home to play Lincoln Hall on April 1.
