A Friend of Unfair Park reminds us that tonight, Radiant will provide the musical entertainment on Jimmy Kimmel Live; this, o' course, follows the band's winning the "Countdown to One" contest that landed the local band a slot on Mr. Sarah Silverman's New Year's Eve broadcast, which we kinda, like, missed or something? Show starts at 11:05 p.m locally on WFAA-Channel 8; us, we'll tune in a little late, as to miss guests Donald Trump and Carrot Fuckin' Top. Till then, here's some vid of the band playing New Year's Eve, as well as some behind-the-scenes footage provided, I think, by this former University of Texas social-workin' student. I think. --Robert Wilonsky
