Japandroids plot world tour… but first, a trip to J-Fal!

    I’m not sure what’s more impressive: Japandroids’ upcoming tour or their performance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night.

    Let’s evaluate. The newly announced world tour, which launches late this month in Europe and will keep the Vancouver outfit on the road through late April with stops in the UK, Canada, and U.S., follows what was already a boatload of dates to cap off 2009. In fact, at last count, by the time April 24th rolls around, Japandroids will have been on the road for eight of the last ten months. Impressive, right?

    Duh, but is it as remarkable as the band’s performance of “Wet Hair” on J-Fal last night? After all, as Taylor Johnson of Music For Ants noted out on Twitter earlier today, “how is it that a few months ago Japandroids said “Wet Hair” was unplayable live and now they’re playing it on national TV? Those rascals.”
