Foster The People Announces Live On Letterman Streaming Concert

[photogallerylink id=102196 align=left]Lively Los Angeles-based indie pop group [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Foster The People[/lastfm] will perform an exclusive Live on Letterman concert direct from the legendary stage of New York’s Ed Sullivan Theater.

The entire concert will stream live on Wednesday, October 26th at 9pm ET/6pm PT, and you can watch it right here or on, presented by Dance Central 2 on Kinect for Xbox 360.

About ten months ago, neo-psychedelic indie band [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Foster the People[/lastfm] was playing a month of free residency shows at a small Los Angeles venue called the Echo.

The week after Foster the People’s first gig at the space, the lines to get into the show literally trailed down Sunset Blvd–all from word of mouth and constant play of their first single, “Pumped Up Kicks,” on KROQ.

Since then, Foster the People’s neon-tinged dance-oriented pop-rock has exploded in popularity across the country, making them a huge draw band at festivals like SXSW, Coachella, ACL, and Lollapalooza, and helped get their songs featured widely on television shows, movies, and commercials.

When their first album Torches was released, it debuted at an impressive number 8 on the Billboard 200 chart and sold 33,000 copies in the first week.

All this from a band that was playing free local gigs just months before.
