Will Ferrell Opens for BOOTS on The Tonight Show, Preceeding "I Run Roulette" Performance (Canvasback/Atlantic Records)

BOOTS is just about the only artist I can think of who's single-handedly worked with Beyoncé, modern day Hip-Hop heavy-weights Run The Jewels, and thinly-veiled Australian songstress Sia, yet has somehow still managed to draw comparisons to Acid-Rockers Queens of The Stone Age; a comparison which @bootsonboots quickly refuted in a seemingly since deleted Tweet, instead likening himself to "future Hendrix/[Black] Sabbath." Late Wednesday night into Thursday morning, BOOTS played what could quite arguably be billed as his biggest "show" to date — one broadcast to hundreds of thousands of fans scattered across the United States and Canada. Jordan Asher took the Tonight Show stage after "openers" Will Ferrell Little Debbie and Chelsea Peretti to perform a riveting rendition of his latest Motorcycle Jesus EP single, "I Run Roulette."

Asher was simply flanked by two righteously pummeling drummers backed by a barrage of strobe, summer festival-esque lights. BOOTS' all too brief Fallon performance might just be a glimpse into his long-awaited "solo" stage set-up, the first of which have just recently been announced: June 17-18th in Los Angeles and July 16th at New York's own Bowery Ballroom. "I Run Roulette" appears within BOOTS' 5-track Motorcycle Jesus EP, the companion to his self-produced short film of the same name, ahead of his forthcoming full-length promised to likely be released later this year on Canvasback/Atlantic Records. Jordan Asher has supposedly recorded two additional "crazy futuristic" albums with rapidly rising alternative acts, FKA Twigs and Autolux, as well as compiling beats for inclusion on Killer Mike & El-P's charity re-MEOWix album, Meow The Jewels.
