Chuck Brown performs at NPR, on "Late Night"

By David Malitz

Chuck Brown sure has been keeping busy lately. The Godfather of Go-Go has played countless venues over his storied career but as he promotes his new three-disc set, "We Got This," he is adding a few new ones to his long list. Last night he made his late night television debut sitting in with The Roots on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon." He didn't get to perform his own song, which was kind of a bummer. But he did get to chat a bit with Fallon and sing as they came back from commercials and get some screen time during the "Freestylin' with The Roots" segment. (Even if that screen time consisted of Brown simply smiling and not playing guitar.)

Two weeks ago Brown visited the NPR offices to perform one of their signature Tiny Desk Concerts. Usually this gives bands a chance to play a stripped down set. Not so with Chuck who had a full 11-piece band in tow. I was there to see it, and it was a blast, with people dancing, sweating and shouting out requests. Not exactly your typical day in the office. You can watch the entire performance above.
