They played Erase Me and then Do It Anyway as they rolled the credits.  Got cut off about 1/3 through the song.

i feel like Ben's voice sounds better live half the time than it does in the studio these days

I thought they sounded great!  Too bad that a full minute or more was cut from Erase Me, but that's the way it is with TV these days.. Fit that 5+ minute song into a nice and tidy 4 minutes.

I thought they sounded WAY better than when on Colbert Report.  Liked that they did Erase Me.  Still surprised they are not doing the title track--either on TV or in the last half of the recent leg of the tour.

It wasn't black for once!

Oh, it's a thing on tumblr.

I mean. I started it as a thing with the man. Brooke, Stef and I had noticed that every performance (including our Hotel Lights gig) Darren was always wearing a black button up. (Usually the same one... SAME one in the Do It Anyway video, and on Colbert). And then meeting Darren pre-Indy show there he is with three black button ups on hangers and nothing else.  WEARING a blue and white striped one. But I in that moment decided the best thing to do was give him shit. And he responded that it saves him on laundry, and that Ben and Robert have suitcases of clothes and he packs lighter than that. And. Then it kinda became a thing. And I, in my infinite wisdom, posted it on the internet.... and it took off. At least for me and my good ol Team Darren buddies online.

If you see the guys live, and I am certain Darren'll be in black, please, someone in AUS or the UK please give him shit. If you're nervous about it, you can tell him Allison sent you. HA

I'm actually fairly surprised they haven't played on Conan or Letterman yet. I know both are pretty big fans
