Tonight is a special night for Houston music: one of our own hometown bands will hit the stage of The Late Show with David Letterman at the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City. But this isn't the first time a Houston musician has been on the show lately -- Nick Gaitan of the Umbrella Man played the show alongside Billy Joe Shaver and Willie Nelson back in December 2014 -- but for the ten-piece, three-year-old Suffers, it's quite the accomplishment.

The band members have gone "all in", quitting their day jobs to go on tour and pursue this dream of all dreams. We congratulate them on their success and will be watching the broadcast at MKT Bar tonight alongside their other fans. In the meantime, enjoy these photos from the last three years:
