Saw these dudes at Eaux Claires fest last weekend. They played on a custom-built in-the-round stage designed by the same dude who designed their studio in NY. Here's a couple pics:

In addition to the cool stage they had 3 platforms about 20 feet away on each side for guest musicians. One had an extra drummer (Phil Cook/HGM drummer JT Bates), one had a sax player and later Julien Baker doing one of her songs (Appointments, segueing into Fake Empire) with the National backing her up. Not sure what the other platform had. Possibly laptop/blippity bloop stuff.

Other guests included Phoebe Bridgers (Sorrow), Gordi, and Chastity Brown (can't remember their two songs). Richard Reed Parry might have joined them at one point, too.

They played 3 or 4 brand new songs, a bunch of stuff from Sleep Well Beast, Sorrow, Graceless, Don't Swallow the Cap, About Today, Fake Empire, and closed with an acoustic, mostly un-miked version of Vanderlyle Crybaby Geeks with the whole crowd joining in.

I'm a very casual National fan at best (a little Berninger goes a long way for me), but this moved them up a level in my mind. Very cool show.

Does Matt always get super drunk?


The setlist for people who are curious about new song titles:

I haven’t heard them sound better live than on this live version of Boxer.

They’ve never sounded better than now. It’s brilliant. Can’t stop listening to them.

I love this band so much. They are easily my current favorite band in the world (and they have been my favorite for years). I better see them soon or I’m gonna go crazy.
