Sunday, Justin appears – and performs – on HBO’s Treme.
We can't say a ton, but here's what we can tell you: Justin appears on the episode with his dad, Steve Earle. There's acting. There's performing. And it all starts Sunday night at 10pm EST/9pm CST on HBO.
Treme is the latest effort from David Simon and Eric Overmyer, collaborators on TV shows like The Wire and Homicide: Life on the Street. Set in post-Katrina New Orleans, Treme looks at ordinary people as they try to rebuild their lives, homes, and culture in the aftermath of the hurricane. The series has boasted quite a few amazing musical guests, including Elvis Costello, Allen Toussaint, Dr. John, Galactic, Kermit Ruffins, and the Rebirth Brass Band.

Finally, in mid-May, Justin is heading into the studio to make the follow-up to his critically acclaimed 2009 record Midnight at the Movies.
A few weeks ago, Nan and Rob appeared on Chicago's own talk show The Interview Show in front of, as they say in the TV biz, a LIVE STUDIO AUDIENCE (or, in this case, The Hideout).
Now it's been edited and posted on the Huffington Post. Have a gander at Nan's silver space lady boots and purple hair. Marvel at the oddly placed microphone that hides most of Rob's face, but not his dry wit. Listen as they talk of the cruel vicissitudes of the music racket and check out the Blacks performance
