The Mountain Goats Played Late Night With Jimmy Fallon

Well, it wasn't exactly Stephen Colbert handling vocals on "This Year," but anytime you can get John Darnielle and Randy Jackson in the same room, you kind of have to do it, right? The band went with "Genesis 3:23"; the svelte second guitarist looks to be Perry Wright from the band Prayers and Tears of Arthur Digby Sellers, who was on the most recent Mountain Goats tour that just wrapped up. This Hulu clip doesn't quite capture it but Darnielle et al apparently made a point of saluting the Roots, which surprises me not at all. May those guys still have their jobs in six months.
