While most of Atlanta trampled and trashed Piedmont Park last night to hear Dave Matthews, I journeyed down to Variety Playhouse to see The National.
The place was packed and it was a great show. The Kid and I worked our way right up front. The highlight was by far the sing along that broke out in the opening stanzas of Fake Empire. When Matt Berninger introduced the song he stated that it was not political. Except for one sentence it sure feels that way to me.
Buy the disc and if you get a chance go see these guys.
