    Fred Armisen, for years the quiet auxiliary character on Saturday Night Live, has rapidly become an ambassador of underground comedy and music culture. It was announced today via Seth Meyer's Twitter, that Armisen will be Late Night's new band leader and music curator. This could quiet many critics who are doubting the newcomer's ability to uphold the prestige of Fallon's musical guests. In addition to being one half of IFC's Portlandia, Armisen is a talented musician who's performed with bands like Les Savy Fav and Bob Mould. As the Late Night curator, we anticipate an insurgence of some serious underground talent. And the dude's a fan of Death Grips, so shit could get pretty wild.
