Japandroids on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon Jan 4 2010

Performing “Wet Hair” on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night (Jan 4 2010), Japandroids singer Brian King wore (along with skinny black jeans, of course) a white T-shirt adorned with the words Kingsway, Nanaimo, Fraser, Main, Commercial, Broadway, Renfrew and Hastings, all street names from Vancouver’s East Side.

It’s no surprise seeing the duo giving props to the ‘hood, though, which has long been the creative hub of the city and an incubator for many of the city’s best indie bands. The band’s debut, Post-Nothing, even has a salute to the area in a song entitled “Rockers East Vancouver”.
