Sometimes when I get in my zone, you'd think I was stoned, but I never as they say, touched the stuf

Free show in downtown Toronto this Friday. The National is one of the headliners for this year's North By Northeast (i.e., NXNE) festival. I'm planning on heading over after work. There will be an outdoor screening of The National doc, Mistaken For Strangers, before the gig. I've seen it already and highly recommend checking it out.

Something finally clicked this time when I listened to them.  I understand the people who are complaining about the vocals being monotone.  I think that was the main reason I couldn't dig them initially.  However, I love the vocals now.  This band is amazing. 

Check out how sick this fan video is:

I wonder why we listen to poets when nobody gives a fuck

Matt's voice sounds pretty rough on that one but how sweet that he changes the words when he's singing to the little girl.   :smiley:

The roughness of his vocals makes it even better imo.

Fans and non fans should see this movie made by Matt's brother.  It's very funny and sweet!  So glad it's getting good reviews.

I watched the film earlier today.  One of the best rockumentaries I have seen.  Great stuff.

Definitely digging the new album.  Looking forward to the October tour de National - catching shows at the Hollywood Bowl, then San Diego, then up to Berkeley.  The wife follows along on my MMJ adventures (OBH 2, 3 & 4; Red Rocks 2015, Nashville 2017) so I figured I could indulge her on this trip!  Plus they put on a great show.  Seen them at MASSMOCA and the Greek (LA) last year.

Just opened my vinyl delivered today. I really love these guys. I dare say I've almost listened to them more over the past year than MMJ....
Always starting over, but somehow I always know where to begin.

Listened to this for the first time last night and again today and I really dig it!  They played on Colbert this week as well which was nice to see!
