Watch The Pretty Reckless Rock ‘Take Me Down’ on ‘Conan’
Late night rocked a little more than usual last night as The Pretty Reckless got a chance to showcase their talents on Conan O’Brien’s self-titled TBS late night show. Though the group is currently burning up the charts with their single “Oh My God,” they chose to go with their previous chart-topper “Take Me Down” for the performance.
After an intro from Conan in which he showcased the band’s Who You Selling For album artwork, the group launched into the bluesy rocking favorite. Guitarist Ben Phillips and bassist Mark Damon flanked vocalist Taylor Momsen, while drummer Jamie Perkins pounded the skins to one side at the back of the stage while a trio of backing singers added extra soulful flavor to the performance on the other side.
Momsen, dressed all in black, pumped her fists to the sky as she belted the “rock, rock, rock” portion of the song, later getting a chance for some guitar interplay with Phillips during an instrumental section of the track. “That was great,” beamed O’Brien at the end of the performance. Watch it play out in the video above.
“Take Me Down” is featured on The Pretty Reckless’ third album, Who You Selling For. The disc is currently available online and in stores and the band has been touring in support of the effort. The band will jet off to Brazil for a South American tour starting March 7 in Curitiba. See their current tour schedule here.
