Watch The Avett Brothers Play "Murder in the City" on <i>Conan</i>

The Avett Brothers happened to be on the West Coast for a show scheduled at Los Angeles’ Nokia Theater tonight, and they stopped by Conan’s show last night to play a song.

The Avetts have been working on some new material for an upcoming album, but they played an oldie instead: “Murder in the City,” the single off of 2008’s Second Gleam EP. The song, writes about the two brothers’ relationship with their family, and judging by this stunning video, they’re apparently not worn out of playing it. Consider our reaction just as enthusiastic as Conan’s.
