Monday night produced a few clickworthy performances that deserve your attention: Angel Olsen and Jungle performed on The Late Show and Jimmy Kimmel Live!, respectively. Both newcomers delivered strong performances to audiences who were likely hearing them for the first time. Meanwhile, at an event in Toronto, a bunch of rock stars sang “Summer Nights” (yes, really).
