Dan Deacon Performs "Ohio" on NBC Morning Circa 2006 [VIDEO]

Dan DeaconIf there’s ever been two things that don’t belong together, it’s electronic oddball Dan Deacon and an NBC morning news/talk show. This awesome footage has just recently regained popularity. It features Dan Deacon performing “Ohio” (and doing his thing), while an entire news station collectively watches/listens in what we can only imagine to be a confused and/or scared state. I love it.

From what I’ve heard, Dan Deacon’s live shows are unbeliavable. Check him out, incase you haven’t already. His latest album is Bromst, which was released back in March. Listen to his hit “Get Older.”

The Philly bred, world renowned hip hop act known affectionately as The Legendary Roots Crew (The Roots ), have been selected and are currently preparing to make a new home on one particular stage that is quite different from all the others that they have graced over the years; The stage of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, on NBC, as the resident house band. The Roots will debut, at the Highline Ballroom, where the show is shot, on March 5, 2009. Fallon, who many had originally become familiar with during his time on Saturday Night Life, has stepped in to replace Conan O’Brien, whom has moved on to do The Tonight Show, which was formerly hosted by Jay Leno (I know, this sounds like a late night soap opera storyline, but just try to follow along). Many say that Jimmy Fallon has some figuratively large shoes to fill with his new found late night slot, but as the globe-trotting Roots ready for the most stationary gig they’ve ever held, some may wonder exactly how this new and ultimately untouched (by a hip hop act) platform will work out.
