Update: Catch William Elliott Whitmore’s performance of “Fear of Trains” on Last Call on the NBC website.

If you’re getting impatient waiting for local alt-country fan favorite William Elliott Whitmore’s upcoming return to the Englert Theatre next weekend, you’ll be happy to know that all you have to do is stay up late tonight and tune in to NBC (KWWL channel 7 in Cedar Rapids and Iowa City). At 12:35 a.m. (so, technically tomorrow) you can catch Whitmore’s network television debut on Last Call with Carson Daly. The Montrose, Iowa native joins The Good Place’s Jameela Jamil, Harry Potter alum Rupert Grint and star of The Lie and Slender Man Joey King.

Whitmore’s latest record, his seventh — and his debut on Chicago-based Bloodshot Records — came out earlier this month. The review of Kilonova in this publication points out that cover albums such as this are a common staple of most artists’ ouvres. But, reviewer Kent Williams continues, “while Whitmore plays music for a living, his music has always seemed like an act of defiance to the calculated products of the music business. Kilonova is no exception.”

Last Call with Carson Daly is currently in its 17th season. Daly premiered the show in 2002, while still hosting the iconic MTV show Total Request Live.

In March, the prolific Whitmore released When Your Demons are Underground and You’ve Got to Dig Them Up with Eastern Iowa supergroup Middle Western (Dave Zollo is also a member). And earlier this year, he was working on a new Hallways of Always record with Jenny Hoyston (of Erase Errata).
