Set DVRs and TiVos to record Late Night with Jimmy Fallon tonight, people. Or heck, just stay up late, that's what coffee's for. Fiona Apple will be on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, the night before the release of her latest album (take a deep breath): " The Idler Wheel is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do." Or "Idler Wheel" for short. "Idler Wheel" is Apple's, now 34, first album in SEVEN years. As for the show on July 1st, it'll be the first time I've seen her since her appearance on the 1997 Lilith Fair tour so you better believe I can't wait to see and hear her again. The Portland show is at The State Theatre. Go here for tickets: statetheatreportland.com
Here's the video for "Idler Wheel's" first single "Every Single Night." www.youtube.com/watch
I have a sneaking suspicion we may hear this one tonight on Fallon.
Welcome back, Fiona. You've been missed!
Aimsel Ponti has been obsessed with - and inspired by- music since she listened to Monkees records borrowed from the town library when she was six years old. She's a huge fan of the local music scene and interviews an act every week for "Making Noise" which runs in the Press Herald GO section. You'll also find her out and about absorbing live music like a sponge and roaming around local record shops and flea markets.
