Talk-show Tango April 23-27: Emily Blunt and Jason Segel’s Five-Year Engagement, Jack White, Ohbijou and Beirut

In television on 04/23/2012 at 6:14 am

Big week for Jason Segel and Emily Blunt, stumping for their romantic comedy The Five-Year Engagement, but it’s music that’s got me all adither. Jack White for Blunderbuss, Canadian cool kids Ohbijou and Beirut. To invoke the late oldest teenager in America, they’ve all got a beat. AND you can dance to ’em.
