Angelic Grimes does Late Night

It's about time that Claire Boucher a.k.a. Grimes made her network television debut. Since releasing her third solo effort Visions (4AD Records) the pixie-like electronic musician has blown up into a full-on indie-rock pop star. Publications from Pitchfork to The New York Times to W has praised the Montreal-based musician for her Mariah Carey-inspired vocals and whimsical yet bold clothing statements. And next week, she's bringing her magic to The Late Night Show With Jimmy Fallon.

August 14 is the date Boucher will join the prestigious list of underground kids who get their world-wide recognition on late night. Being asked to perform on late night television is a big sign your career is taking off, but we think Grimes is already up in the sky waving down at all of us.
