Wavves Dressed Up For Their Network TV Debut On ‘Letterman’ Last Night

David Letterman’s been doing Late Show for so long now that he must completely tune out whenever he’s not onscreen. I bet he hasn’t heard a single note played by a band on his show since Wreckx-n-Effect were tearing up the charts. But he must have at least noticed Wavves, if only to admire/be terrified by guitarist Stephen Pope’s hair. It looks he stapled an exploded poodle on his scalp — and paired it with a tie-dyed Metallica shirt.

It’s a good look, but “Demon to Lean,” from Wavves’ new album Afraid of Heights, is even better.
