Matt Berninger of The National takes a breath @ The Moody Theater on 4/21/2014
The National brought their tour with Warpaint to Austin for their first of three great double bills at ACL Live at Moody Theater last night (4/21). Like other shows on this tour, The National did a pretty good job of mixing it up between their last few albums, hitting tracks like Alligator's "Abel," Boxer's "Squalor Victoria," High Violet's "Conversation 16" and their newest, Trouble Will Find Me's "I Need My Girl." Pictures of the show are in this post.
The National and Warpaint do it again at ACL Live tonight (4/22) and Wednesday (4/23). Both sold out. More pictures and The National's setlist from night 1 below...
Warpaint open for the National at ACL Live Monday and Tuesday and Wednesday night (4/21-4/23). Can't make it? Check the ladies out in the much more intimate setting of Waterloo Records Tuesday at 1pm (long lunch break?). Flyer above.

Robert Levon Been of BRMC at Austin Psych Fest - 4/26/2013
Austin Psych Fest 2013 happened last weekend (April 26 - 28) at Carson Creek Ranch which looks like could be a permanent home for the annual event. The idylic big sky setting was a good fit for the music that often aimed for the stratosphere (and beyond). Friday night's kickoff (4/26) featured sets from Raveonettes, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Tamryn, Acid Mothers Temple, Tinariwen and more. A full set of pics are available at BrooklynVegan and if you haven't checked out our set of Psych Fest portraits, please do so.
