The National @ The Bell House in March (more by Bao Nguyen)
The National

There's still no word on what will be happening at the The National-curated High Violet Annex May 11th-15th. But the band will be playing at another downtown space today at 2pm for WNYC's Soundcheck. Tickets are long sold out, but you can stream the band's performance at the Greene Space online (video and audio) at WNYC.org or listen on the radio at 93.9 FM and AM 820 (DJ Rob Swift performs too.)

The National's new record is still streaming and they've got other shows (NYC and beyond) on the way too.

Also coming up at the Greene Space are the Hold Steady, who's new album is streaming, on May 14th (which is sold out).

Moby and singer-songwriter Somi play the space on May 4th, and tickets are on sale.

Speaking of Moby, his LES vegetarian/vegan cafe Teany is officially reopening today after a being closed since last June because of a fire. Eater says, "The interior has been restored to its former look, and there's been no word of any menu changes."

When were the Greenspace shows for the National and Hold Steady even announced in the first place?

I read about it on Gothamist a couple weeks ago. Was curious why the news hadn't appeared on BV.

It was an amazing, intimate show - they were excellent in this venue. They answered a few questions, and they played a few songs from High Violet - Terrible Love, Anyone's Ghost, Afraid of Everyone...
