The National / Phosphorescent @ Prospect Park - 6/17/14
The National
The National
Phosphorescent

The National kicked off their three-night run in Prospect Park last night (6/17) with a lengthy set that included favorites from their last four albums (plus a cut from the Cherry Tree EP). As anyone who's seen The National knows, the band go harder than their records would have you believe, but Matt Berninger went extra hard last night, hitting his head on one of the video screens causing him to bleed (as you can see above). Hope you're okay, Matt! There's a different opener every night, and last night's was Phosphorescent whose Matthew Houck joined The National during their encore for "Terrible Love." Pictures of both bands are in this post.

The run continues tonight (6/18) with Lord Huron (a few tickets are still available) and Thursday (6/19) with MS MR (no available tix at the moment, but you can win them). All three shows are "benefit" shows for Celebrate Brooklyn's ongoing season at the venue.

Ugh, this had the WORST crowd at any National show I've been to.

Lots of wall st. bros and people who were totally nonplussed.

I still had fun.

The National actually went on just after 8:15. Crowd last night was lame. Even the people in the front along the barrier were low energy.

Posted by Anonymous | June 18, 2014 4:59 PM

about today sounded great. and yeah, the crowd was kind of annoying, alot of talking through the quiet songs. but that's expected at those prospect park shows. actually most new york city shows to be honest.

The crowd wasn't actually that bad where I was (1st/2nd row on Bryce's side). From experience, the further you are back in a National audience, the more Wall Street bros. That happened to me at Barclays. My friend almost punched one out because he wouldn't stop talking SO LOUD throughout the entire show. Like someone mentioned, the crowd was kind of low energy last night, until about the encore quite frankly. I didn't mind though. Less assholes trying to push into you when you just want to enjoy "Sea of Love." I kind of lucked out with no one really talking in my direct area. Usually the opposite lately when I got to shows.

Posted by Doc | June 18, 2014 6:06 PM

Sound was way too low and a bit off. Good show but Matt really needs to turn up the energy earlier in the show. Not just the last 2 songs.

Anyone expecting The National to have a fun, enthusiastic crowd at this stage in their career is totally delusional. They play safe, mainstream, background music. And LOL at the thought they played "extra hard." The lead singer sips wine on stage for god's sake.

I was in the front by Aaron's side and I felt the lack of enthusiasm from the crowd. I told a couple of "ladies" off after hearing way too much talk about how their friend is a brat. Please drown this summer.

Right. But did they play that song that starts out like, "YO DJ PUMP DIS PARTY!"

Posted by Anonymous | June 19, 2014 8:17 AM

LOL 8:03 find a picture of him WITHOUT a wine bottle! Fucking rummy.

Also, drunks always walk into shit like glass doors, small children and video screens. Remember when he hurt his ankle because he was too shitfaced to walk on the chairs in the orchestra (was it BAM or Beacon?).

Maybe a 30 day stint at Hazelton and he may stop decaying as rapidly. Drunks always look older than they are.

Posted by Anonymous | June 19, 2014 8:37 AM

agreed that crowds are starting to really suck, BUT i was very impressed with the crowd at the Sharon Van Etten show last week at Bowery. No one talked and I saw only 2 people take a couple of pictures... it was unreal.

Agreeing with all of this. Since when does The National attract bros? They were out in full force last night, singing the wrong lyrics when they weren't talking loudly about the Hamptons.

I think Matt's drinking could help explain why this band is so fucking mediocre and boring. Drunks are either all agro and violent or they're useless and disconsolate

What was their problem last night? You think they'd be far more psyched to be playing their hometown. Bad/practically non-existent stage banter. Didn't introduce most of the band. Barely gracious. This was my third time seeing them, and I can't help think they are just as douchey as most of the crowd.

The National have been attracting bros for a while. But the same could be said for the recent years I have seen Vampire Weekend (worst bros),and even of Montreal (oddly).

It's not so much that they are bros, it's the fact that they are always drunk, rude and obnoxious and push through people like they are the fucking kings of the crowd. Guh they need to go back to Dave Matthews where they belong.

The talking at shows in the city lately really puts a damper on things. Why the hell are you paying 50 bucks a ticket and then talking to your friend about what happened at work that day? Shut up!

Posted by JJamz | June 19, 2014 12:34 PM

10:58 nothing could be further from the truth. They are super nice guys. I've met them outside concert settings and Matt and Aaron are fucking lovely people. I didn't have a chance to talk to the others but I am sure they are equally cool dudes. I am sorry some of you didn't enjoy the show but I would have sold my left boob to be there.

Posted by kelly | June 19, 2014 12:40 PM

Guys, the band is in their 40s. Give them a break. Matt did more of throwing the cups of alcohol and tossing the bottle then the 3 sips I saw him take. If you want glitz and glamour go see Lady Gaga. If you are complaining they're too boring on stage, how are you even there in the first place? The National aren't known for their budding pop songs. Jesus. They aren't going to dance around to "Lemonworld."

Posted by Anonymous | June 19, 2014 12:46 PM

@12:40 AGREED! I've met Matt on several occassions and he has always been extremely nice, personable, and just an all around great guy. On that same note I've never heard any 'bad' stories when meeting Matt or anyone from the band. Matt will take the time out to joke around with you, talk to your 7 year old kid. I know from experience.

Do your homework before you start running your mouth.

Dude, I wouldn't want to deal with your screaming kid either 12:57. I'm sure he wasn't mean to you or your little ankle biter either. When I met Matt the first time we were all on the same plane. He met my mom. Ever since, he always asks how she is. Aaron was sitting behind us and helped her put the suitcases in the overhead compartment. Neither of them flinched when I was in like full fan girl mode either. Quit being nasty and enjoy the music.

MY KID WAS NOT SCREAMING. SHE IS A FAN OF THE BAND. And you know what? Matt wasn't fucking drunk, he was coming out of a movie theater.

The fuck should I have her listening to Katy Perry instead?

I guess the bros are on the board today and their trust funds got closed down this morning or some shit.

Shut your fucking trap.

It is people like you who ruin fucking shows for everyone else. Go fuck yourself and go cry to your mommy and daddy that your yacht to the Hamptons isn't running.

Then you should have stood up for her by (1) punching him out, (2) yelling at him, (3) politely asking him to shut the fuck up. All the these options are better than doing nothing at the time and then whining on a blog a year later.

People always argue on here. I've been away from this blog for years but wanted to see coverage of this show because I enjoyed it thoroughly. And it's clear that nothing has changed.

If people aren't screaming and dancing, others complain that the crowd is lame. If people are screaming and dancing, they are "douchey" and are ruining peoples' good times.

After so many shows, people jump onto BV and whine that it wasn't what they wanted it to be. As if everyone around you should be catering to your preferences. You paid $50 for a ticket to a 7,000 person capacity venue. Manage your expectations.

And as for the jealously over the "Wall St. bros", get over yourselves. Everyone who bought a ticket is entitled to show up, and if anyone is really ruining your experience with outrageous behavior, alert security or better yet, sack up and confront them.

I wouldn't have a problem with people disliking their music because not every band is everyone's taste. (I'd think you're crazy but I'd understand) There are plenty of bands that I don't like and people love. Taste is personal. I do however have a problem with those of you who are making personal attacks on Matt. That's unnecessary and they are inaccurate. He's a wonderful guy.

Posted by Kelly | June 19, 2014 1:45 PM

I've known the band for 15 years. Whatever you think of their music, they are all nice and decent people and that includes Matt, who is a loving father and good friend.

Posted by louis | June 19, 2014 1:47 PM

If you act like a drunk, or you are a drunk, and it is a visible and obvious part of the stage act, then pointing it out is not a personal attack. If you dress like a ho' then don't be surprised when guys treat you like a ho'. If you had a daughter you would understand that point, mui claro.

Seriously are you fukking 12. Go back and re-read your AA pamphlet or call a sponsor. The vast majority of performers worth their salt are continually banged up on stage and booze is the least of their problems. I guess the years and years of middle and high school musicals you participated in or your failed improv comedy troupe must have solidified your stage presence thus rendering alcohol meaningless.

Ok, thanks for clearing that up that you were indeed trolled.

SMH and LOL at the moron.

The troll started a BIT earlier than 1:33, nitwit. But you never where the brightest kid on the short bus.

Let's recap for the moron

Comment at 1:33

"This is a fun thread. Very much enjoying the stupidity. Keep it up guys"

The very next comment at 1:36 directly responding to 1:33

"Asshole's definition of "stupidity" = anything anyone else thinks, feels, expresses, or observes which does not perfectly align with Asshole's constricted worldview

Asshole's definition of "fun" = assholes don't have fun; assume what is meant is anything that is understood in concept but never experienced"


!:36, i know you are trying very hard here but you cannot possibly be this stupid, right?

Posted by Anonymous | June 19, 2014 4:30 PM

LOL trying so hard, adorable

Say, how many times was the word "boring" used in these comments? How about "drunk"? If you find the first instance of "drunk" you may just find where the troll started.

You child ;-)

Yes 1:36/4:34 and all the other comments you made. Try hard to deflect but of course you can;t run from the fact that you highlighted the words 'stupidity' and 'fun' in direct response to the comment at 1:33

Keep trying moron. I laugh at you more and more each comment.

I was the "bro" - showered, clean-shaven, professional degree, some athletic ability. Pretty much the worst kind of person there is... Sorry I ruined it for everyone. Great show though. Better even than Maroon 5...
