Local Natives Jimmy Fallon

Last night, Local Natives stopped by Late Night With Jimmy Fallon to perform “Heavy Feet” off their newly released sophomore album, Hummingbird, and fans across the nation got a little taste of that amazing live show Jay recapped for us last week after he caught the band’s performance at El Rey Theatre.

My first encounter with Local Natives was seeing them open for White Rabbits at El Rey in ’09, so I’ve never had to wonder if the intricate, layered songs the band laid down in a studio could be recreated on stage — my concern was whether a recording could ever capture the energy of the group’s live show, a concern that was firmly squashed with Gorilla Manor and again with Hummingbird.

Check out the Fallon performance for yourself below, and if you’re lucky enough to live near one of Local Natives’ upcoming tour dates that isn’t sold out, I suggest you pick up tickets immediately.
