    by RockPeaks

    Florence and the Machine perform "Dog Days Are Over" on Saturday Night Live, November 20th, 2010. One night earlier, Sufjan Stevens hit the stage at Jimmy Fallon to perform "Too Much" from his long-awaited album "The Age of Adz". The PBS series American Masters paid homage to John Lennon last week, airing the wonderful doc "Lennon NYC". We've taken a snippet of "John Sinclair" from it, which Lennon and Yoko Ono performed at the John Sinclair Freedom Rally in 1971. Metric performed a rocking version of "Gold Guns GIrls" on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on November 21st, and will soon be heading into the studio to record their next album. Emily Haines also shows up in our On Disc segment, in which we feature "This Movie Is Broken", Bruce MacDonald's "Rock Show Romance". Jason Collett's "I'll Bring The Sun" is a musical highlight, as is the duet between Kevin Drew and Leslie Feist on "I Feel It All". Tower Of Power continue to tour this fall, we look at a vintage version of "What Is Hip?" from Soul Train in 1973, as well as two clips from recent performances, 'We Came To Play" taken from the AVO Session in Basel in 2009, as well as "I Got To Groove" from their 40th Anniversary concert at San Francisco's FIllmore in 2008. It was 40 years ago this week that the Eagles hit the top of the Billboard charts with "Hell Freezes Over" their top-selling reunion album, recorded after a 14 year "vacation". "Get Over It" was the best performing new song from this effort.
