The National 9:30 Club

Stayed out super late last night picking apples and watching The National, standing inside an empty tuxedo at the punch table swallowing punch. We expected something, something better than before.

The National - Live at the 9:30 Club (NPR Stream)

Since they don't play too much old stuff anymore live, please to enjoy a few dance hall classics from their self titled debut (2001) and Sad Songs for Dirty Lovers (2003):

The National - 29 Years
The National - Thirsty

Lyrics sound familiar on 29 Years...

Buy The National (st).
Buy Sad Songs For Dirty Lovers.

I say it's a Slow Show.

Thought the show was top-notch. Here's to hoping that they come through again on a 2nd leg of their tour.
