I misread it as "Wack Off" and thought it was about high school.

Is this pic from the Terrible Love video? ^^^

If so could the alternative version be acoustic?
I pressumed it would be the straight up rock version they play live.

No, that's just them in an office, which I thought was funny because of all the "white collar band" stuff they get labeled with. I think it said they were warming up there briefly before a gig.

I find their pulling of the race card in this performance regrettable.

I'm not a fan of this version either, Especially not as a concert closer!
I hope The National change this, The crowd here look painfully bored and as said above the vibe is pretty tame, school asembly vibe to it alright.

Vanderlylle was fine as it was before, It was great actually, better than the album version IMO.

That crowd did get Mr. November > Terrible Love > About Today before that, so I'm not feeling sorry for them.

Painfully bored? No one's leaving...if they were painfully bored, the place would have been empty before the song ended.

I think maybe that crowd was so into the show that the band came out (or stayed out) after the encores and did one last song as a special thank you. If that's the case, it was mighty damned cool.

probably sums up everything i don't like about the National but yeah if it was as indra said, just an impromptu way to end a great gig, then that's pretty cool.

that would take pride of place in the middle of the main set at a U2 gig

If everything I disliked about The National was, "They don't sound as good with unmiced acoustic guitars and a tambourine," then I fucking love The National.

Saw the show last night in Atlanta. Was really great. They set was just about everything i wanted to hear.

I liked the acoustic close. I was also in the front row, so it was really incredible. May have sucked if you were farther back.

This is a video i shot of the opening Runaway:
