I generally dislike listening to stripped-down versions of anything.

Had to. Although I learned a lot about why Lance is the way he is before doing so.

Went to the National show in Vienna last Wednesday, it was actually part of a little Indie festival with 4 bands performing and the National playing as the main act. I had no idea what to expect, but it was fantastic. Here's what they played:

Start A War
Anyone's Ghost
Bloodbuzz Ohio
Mistaken For Strangers
Secret Meeting
Squalor Victoria
Afraid Of Everyone
Available
Cardinal Song
Little Faith
Conversation 16
Apartment Story
Sorrow
Abel
England
Fake Empire

Encore:
Runaway
Slow Show
Mr. November
Terrible Love

Does Matt always wander off into the audience? He did that during the encore, almost struck me down and strangled people with his microphon cable Man, that was scary, but also cool

Great show, I'm really enjoying their music right now

Yeah, pretty much -- I think he wandered through the crowd and out to the beer stand and video screens (which are in a little courtyard off to the side of the performance area) at the show I went to. I couldn't help but laugh at all the "what the hell is he doing?" comments.

I met a guy wearing a National T-shirt tonight. I wish I remembered his name. He got the T-shirt when he saw them on the Boxer Tour, that's about all I remember.

I seen The National again Sunday night at The Electric Picnic festival, I sneaked in just to see them, I caught the end of Mumford and Sons set too, which sounded pretty good,

The National were really great again, Would have been even better if there sound engineer wasnt so clueless!!! He had the levels all over the place, The Guitars were burried, The Bass was so loud it was breaking up and dominating all the other instruments, I was really close, had a great spot for the gig, and still the sound was brutal, the Piano wasn't audable for Squalor Victor, The Guitar riff was missing from Abel, Very bad Sound Engineer!!! There were some great moments tho, and I could see glimpses of how good it should have been!!! I still enjoyed the frustrating gig!

They have just announced Tour Dates for Ireland in December!!!
VERY HAPPY!!!!

I'd rather catch SARS than catch any portion of a Mumford & Sons set.

Hahaha, yeah I'm not that into them either, very repetitive music IMO, But they had a good full sound, It was only 1 song anyway and all in the name of The National!

Man another great album from these guys. The National remind me of Spoon, flying just under the radar and making amazing music on a consistant basis without apeing for the public's approval with echo-y guitars and reverb.

Apologies if this has been discussed before, but is this song about baseball?
