This week's schedule

Last week, The Raconteurs stopped in Minneapolis to perform at the Armory and spent the day after the concert at a Twins Game. If their time in Minnesota left you wanting more, tune in to Jimmy Kimmel Live! because the Raconteurs will be the musical guests for the showing on Thursday. The 1975 — the English pop rock band that stopped by The Current for a Theft of the Dial in 2015 — will be on The Late Late Show with James Corden on Monday. The next day on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, there will be a new showing with a performance from Nilufer Yanya, a young indie singer hailing from London who also performed at the SXSW Festival last year. The Today show will be spotlighting famous English singer/songwriter and former Beatles bandmate Paul McCartney on Thursday.

Other notable showings this week include a performance from 21-year-old rapper YBN Cordae — who just released the song "Bad Ideas" feat. Chance the Rapper from his next album The Lost Boy, which drops on Friday — on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon (Tuesday), performances by country singer Kane Brown and American vocalist Hobo Johnson on Late Night with Seth Meyers (Monday and Wednesday, respectively), and country group Lady Antebellum on Good Morning America (Friday). A re-run of Aurora on Last Call with Carson Daly will air Wednesday and The Jonas Brothers will show, once again, on Jimmy Fallon Friday.

A performance by Greta Van Fleet re-airs for Saturday Night Live this week. The Michigan rock band accompanies actress Rachel Brosnahan, who is known for her role as "Midge" Maisel from the Amazon series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Fans of Cyndi Lauper can re-watch her live performances of "Funnel of Love" and "She Bop" from her Jan. 14, 2017, appearance on Austin City Limits this upcoming weekend as well.
