Anyone in the US, did you see "Late Show w/David Letterman" last night? I
think it was a rerun, but Macy was on. She did "Do Something" - It was
pretty cool, the band was pretty tight. Actually I focused my attention on
the bandmembers, I think I spotted some familliar faces from the Los
Angeles funk/acid jazz scene - The guitarist was Arik Marshall, who plays
in Weapon of Choice and is also a card-carrying member of the Former Red
Hot Chili Peppers Guitarist Club :) And in the horn section, I think I
spotted this dude I know named Todd who also plays trumpet for the
Breakestra. Also their sax player and DJ look familiar...
