I'll Explain Everything To The Geeks
Christopher and I saw the National at Bank of America Pavilion last night (yes, we're a day late here). They were really fun to see; The National are a very ethereal, lost in the mist kind of band on record, but live, they have a real fullness and warmth to them. Tremendous show.
Two highlights: the second to last song, About Today, Matt Berringer came out in to the crowd and worked his way through, while singing. Second, Vanderlyle Crybaby Geeks. Acoustic, as in, the band assembled at the front of the stage, without mics, singing just loud enough for the crowd to hear, and we sang the rest. It was beautiful. I sang along, and Christopher listened to me sing, because apparently he thinks I can.
Terrific night of musical joy under the big tent.
