Nice. I'm seeing them Saturday. Won't be attending next Monday's ACL taping, however.

They played the "unmiced" version to close out the show that I attended last night, and it had an incredibly strong reception. The whole place was spellbound. Matt had also spent the majority of "Terrible Love" wandering through the crowd, which had definitely raised the excitement level.

Shout out for Aussie fans, presale starts this evening at 5pm for Sydney and Melbourne shows (password is Violet).

I'm so there at the Sydney show, but $75 +bf is fucking ridiculous.

I saw The National last night at the ACL Festival.

Good God, they were incredible. I thought they murdered everything else I saw that weekend, including Muse.

No, it's actually basically synced up with the video: it's Terrible Love. Mr. November ends with him singing, they don't play on after that. And if you watch the instruments, it's definitely the end of Terrible Love.

Terrible Love it is then. I was keeping my eyes on Berninger the whole time without noticing what the band is actually playing.

Anyway, I don't consider it to be superior to the album version; personally I love the lo-fi, filthy feel of the album version.

I don't like the album version because it fucks with the drumming. This version is better solely because you can hear the drumming as you should be able to.

I forgot to mention how good the show was a week and a half ago. It was good.

If you ran into him with your car by mistake, it would not be good.
