no word on the southseaport show, eh? guess i'll just head down there and see...

Posted by w | August 17, 2007 6:18 PM

Pouring rain, with a little thunder and lightning thrown in, at 630pm.
I'm at Broadway and Vesey, so its about a 10 minute walk to the Seaport.
If it doesn't stop by 730, this is another fucking washout outdoor show.

Posted by Anonymous | August 17, 2007 6:25 PM

Do they even play with this rain? It's pretty bad....

Posted by Anon | August 17, 2007 6:30 PM

ok, thanks. fuck. i was really excited about this one...

Posted by w | August 17, 2007 6:31 PM

I love Grohl. I love Arcade Fire. Awesome way to start the weekend.

Posted by Anonymous | August 17, 2007 6:35 PM

Well it seems to have stopped raining. I'm going to head on over there and try to grab this one. Check my site tomorrow morning.

Pouring again

What is the status of the show?!? Noting on the river to river website. I am afraid of getting my stupid asymmetrical haircut wet in this rain. I am considering staying in Williamsburg and drink PBRs ironically with other dumbass hipsters.

Eskimo Joe and Jason Anderson record release at Union Hall.

The rain stopped just in time for The National to play a full 15-song set, the last half of which, I thought, was excellent.

For some lousy pics and a (nearly) complete set list:

thanks scoboco, other than the microphone cutting out it was a great show, better than when they opened for arcade fire.

also was the singer crying at the last song of the encore? looks like he got very emotional. it was a great song too.

Posted by Anonymous | August 18, 2007 12:02 PM

I did record the show, and it sounds quite nice when Matt's microphone isn't crackling.
Up on my site now.

The National were amazing..especially towards the end! First time I ever saw them live..truly excellent!

Posted by Shinoi Shaw | August 18, 2007 1:38 PM

i wasnt really a fan of the national before, but after that show wow, i have to pick up some of their cds.

takka takka played i think 5 songs for about 20 minutes, and the forms played about 15 minutes, 3 songs. they could have played longer considering national was done by went on little after 8 and were done by 9:15 and their curfew is i believe 10 oclock. however i think they wanted them to hit the stage because they were expecting more rain later.

and uhh thanks for the nyc taper for taping this show, although i still have to say i dont agree with you on the whole sonic youth debacle.

Posted by nyc noise fan | August 18, 2007 2:05 PM

The National was really good last night. Their songs carry surprisingly well in an open venue like the Seaport. I was very happy with the setlist.

Posted by Devin | August 18, 2007 2:07 PM

Yeah not sure what some of these other posters are talking about. This is probably the first time they are seeing The National because it definately was not one of their best performances. I am sure the weather and the bad mic had something to do with it. Got down there at 8 and was suprised at how many people showed up with the rain and all. Had to really work to "manuever" my way up close(i hope that most of these bandwagon hipster shitheads stay home for the battles show or there is going to be some serious beatdowns) Anyway show was good but nowhere near as good as the recent Bowery shows. Nice to see them in an outdoor setting though and good thing the rain stayed away for their set.

Posted by Anonymous | August 18, 2007 3:08 PM

battles is going to be crowded as fuck and there's nothing you can do to change that

i look forward to some serious beatdowns

Posted by Anonymous | August 19, 2007 4:16 PM

I guess because the drummer was from Helmet that means there's going to be serious beatdowns?

Seeing that the average height of most of these indy rockers will be about 5'3", I don't think there's going to be too much tension unless you count the one tall guy who stands in front of them while they fret and complain to companion that they "can't see".
