I'm not totally sold on The National yet, but that's probably cuz I haven't listened to their new album, Boxer, yet. So, I'm getting there slowly but surely. I dig that they're kinda working the negative space between The Walkmen and Interpol. They're playing the South Street Seaport Music Festival in NYC this Friday, with The Forms and Takka Takka opening. Oh yeah, and it's FREE. So come hang out, and if you see me, say 'what's up', give me a pound, whatever.
Lineup: Takka [6pm], Forms [7pm], National [8pm]
"Fake Empire" [live on Letterman]
- BONUS: "Mistaken For Strangers" [video]
