The latest side project from R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck — the country-tinged Tired Pony, fronted by Snow Patrol singer Gary Lightbody — stopped by the “Late Show with David Letterman” last night to perform “Dead American Writers,” off the band’s just-released debut The Place We Ran From. The band — which also features longtime R.E.M. sideman Scott McCaughey — performs at New York City’s Irving Plaza tonight and the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles on Monday.
