This week's schedule

Rock the Garden headliners The National kick off the week with an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday. Swedish dream pop singer/songwriter Lykke Li and Mark Ronson — who have recently released Late Night Feelings together, one of the many pieces in Ronson's collection of heartbreak song collaborations — will appear on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Thursday. Regina Spektor, meanwhile, who is set to perform on Broadway this month, will perform on Late Night with Seth Meyers the same night. Other new performances this week include Jessie Reyez feat. 6lack on The Late Show (Tuesday), and Maggie Rogers and Gary Clark Jr. on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday and Friday, respectively.

Notable reruns this week include an encore of a performance by Durand Jones & The Indications, which re-airs this Friday on Last Call with Carson Daly. Saturday brings an encore of a Saturday Night Live from March 30, on which Tame Impala debuted their song "Borderline" as the official the musical guest accompanying Greys Anatomy actress and episode host, Sandra Oh.

The PBS music series Austin City Limits, currently on its summer hiatus, keeps things fresh during the break with a stunning lineup of encore episodes; this week, ACL dusts off a good one Season 43: Herbie Hancock with songs "Overture," "Secret Sauce," "Chameleon" and "Cantaloupe Island."
