Matt @ ACL 2010 (more by Tim Griffin)
The National

The National will be playing an MTV taping at The Studio at Webster Hall on Tuesday night (part of MTV's Live in NYC series). Unfortunately a few tickets just went on sale and sold right out at 10am for the lucky people who knew (I didn't realize they were going on sale at that time), had the password (conversation16), and could actually get one. The sort of good news for those who don't have a ticket is that they'll post the video of the show online on MTV.com on 2/21, and that I have a pair of tickets to give away. Details on how to win, with all current National tour dates, below...

--
To win a pair of tickets to see The National at the Studio at Webster Hall, e-mail BVCONTESTS@HOTMAIL.COM (subject: The National). Include your first and last name in the email. A winner will chosen at random and contacted with more details. Good luck!

i should've been able to get tix because my last.fm account name is conversation_16

Berninger looks very confrontational in that pic. Looks like he's gonna show those dudes how it is.

i had the password and still didn't get tickets. who is getting all these tickets?!

Posted by Anonymous | February 7, 2011 10:51 AM

the ten ticket limit surely didn't help matters.

Posted by javier buchananeversonia | February 7, 2011 10:56 AM

sold out in literally seconds

Posted by Anonymous | February 7, 2011 11:01 AM

I got two. The limit was 10 - so you can imagine what scalpers will do with this.

Posted by Anonymous | February 7, 2011 11:01 AM

i thought the same thing about that 10 ticket limit. those are probably going directly to scalpers.

Scalpers around webster hall? Surely not

Ha, ha. Ah well. What can you do? Ticket Karma...it comes and it goes...I got a Godspeed ticket for 3/17 this week at face value, and one just above face. People who support these assholes get what they deserve.

Anyone who has any appreciation for good music and good taste should be boycotting anything to do with MTV. Love The National, but wouldn't go to this if it was free.

Posted by Anonymous | February 7, 2011 1:23 PM

MTV is still in business?

Posted by Anonymous | February 7, 2011 1:37 PM

10 ticket max?? Good lord, was this a scalper charity benefit? Naturally MTV had to mess up a good thing.

@2:04 lol. i like how the requirement to be a "girl" is in quotes. probably flexible on that detail.

Posted by Anonymous | February 7, 2011 2:41 PM

2:04, that post is exactly why people hate it when their favorite bands get big

Posted by Anonymous | February 7, 2011 2:54 PM

wow, i hope that guy falls spills beer all over his pants just before this imaginary girl who "finds him cute" shows up

Posted by Anonymous | February 7, 2011 3:37 PM

so excited for this show! will i be able to sneak a flask into this gig?

Posted by Anonymous | February 7, 2011 5:58 PM

I haven't attended a show at The Studio..Are you usually able to sneak upstairs and see acts on the main stage?

Posted by Anonymous | February 7, 2011 6:03 PM

@5:58 i've always had luck sneaking in flasks to Webster Hall.

Posted by Anonymous | February 7, 2011 6:06 PM

Anyone know what time National are due to take the stage? Is 8 p.m. the acutal set time b/c it's an MTV taping?

Posted by Anonymous | February 8, 2011 4:40 PM

i want to murder all scalpers

Posted by Anonymous | February 8, 2011 4:47 PM
