What nerves? Those young indie wunderkinds in Minneapolis’ little-band-that-could, Now, Now, made their network TV debut last night on “Late Night Jimmy Fallon,” and as you can see in the clip below they looked as cool-beans about it as they would at an Entry gig. Dig the great smiles that break out between Cacie Dalager and Jess Abbott at the start of the performance.

The song, “Thread,” is the almost-title-track off their sophomore album, “Threads,” which came out in March on Death Cab for Cutie guitarist Chris Walla’s boutique label Trans. Dalager, Abbott and drummer Bradley Hale have pretty much been on the road since then, including dates with “We Are Young” hitmakers fun. over the summer. This Fallon performance -- which came after a sure ratings-getter first guest, Kristin Stewart -- is a nice little pay-off to their hard work, although Poliça drummer Drew Christopherson says that the show’s music booker gushed about Now, Now fan way back in April when Poliça played the show.

Now, Now also performed a second song on the Fallon set, “Prehistoric,” which you can see exclusively on the show’s website. While you’re there, you may want to check out the amusing performance by RNDM, the band with Joseph Arthur and Pearl Jam’s Jeff Ament, which debuts locally at First Ave next Thursday.

Now, Now will be back in town on Nov. 18 for a sold-out show with current tourmates Motion City Soundtrack at the Varsity Theater.
