The Dodos made their network television debut on Letterman last Friday, finally getting their friends and family to believe that they’re a real, successful band. The performance has a charming little fish-big pond feel to it, exactly the kind that makes me wonder how Letterman feels watching the band. Does he spend the whole time spinning a pen on his thumb? Is he initially dismissive but slowly persuaded that “hey, these kids can play”? Something tells me that Paul’s probably paying more attention.
