It’s a tradition as old as the Johnny Carson show: Most nights, since 1966, bands big and small play on the national stage of late night television. Sometimes good things happen, sometimes bad things happen, but the performances are always worth watching. They’re captivating mostly because they offer the raw sound of a live band and the professional video and audio recording of a late night television show.

This week, June 24– 29: Miley Cyrus brings the prospective song of the summer to Kimmel; Mavis Staples re-establishes her R&B dominance; and Ryan Bingham reps good, sturdy Americana.
