Yesterday afternoon Bloodshot Records announced that Justin Townes Earle makes his late night television debut tonight, Wednesday, January 5. on the Late Show with David Letterman. The show airs locally on KMOV Channel 4 at 10:30 p.m. Central time.
Performing the title track to his fantastic new album, Harlem River Blues, which had the honor of being on a few Best of 2010 lists (#18 here and the #1 spot on Blurt’s Reader Poll), Earle will hit the road playing mostly college towns for the next couple of months.
If you can’t stay up that late make sure to set your DVRs!
Earle also has some Midwest concert dates this winter you may want to catch. The nearest Earle plays to St. Louis will be in Bloomington, IL about 2 plus hours North of the Arch.
