Deerhunter's late-night excursion
Four months after Deerhunter's (not so) secret sardine-tight show at East Atlanta's tiny 529, the band made its national TV debut on "Conan." After the wily show host exposed his junk in a pair of man-jeggings and the Kardashian sisters discussed the merits of putting mayo on their va-jay-jays, Deerhunter closed with a performance of "Helicopter" that sounded as ethereal as ever. With the smoke machine coughing white clouds all over the stage, it was a surreal coming-out.
