I prefer the term transient. Sometimes I’m at awesome shows. Sometimes I’m at home.

(I’m not homeless but could well be at any time given what’s happening here with ballooning rents and property crisis. We learned nothing and we’ve only just come out of the last crash)

I’ve had their albums on shuffle every available moment since the weekend.

What a fucking band.

Odd thing I noticed listening on shuffle.

Some of their records are mixed remarkably louder and clearer than others.
It’s odd

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?

I don't have money to be spending on cds these days. I'm receptive to care packages, if you'd like. Be sure to include beer.

And if you can’t afford a $12 CD you should probably just suicide.

It's not on there. There are songs scattered about but I refuse to listen this way. I also refuse to listen through my puter speakers. I listen to CDs in my car. Send me an old fashioned care package, ffffaJay.

They have a great catalog, but Boxer has always been head and shoulders above the rest for me.

I saw that it's no good. Post better and stop being a dork and send me a care package.
