A still from 'Mistaken for Strangers'
The National, who'll headline the Barclays Center in June, are the subject of a new tour documentary, Mistaken for Strangers, which will make its premiere at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival (April 17 - 28). The film was directed by Tom Berninger, whose brother Matt is lead singer of The National. Here's the synopsis:
Adrift in life and fuelled by the desire to create, Tom Berninger accepts his brother's offer to come on The National tour as a roadie and decides to chronicle his experiences with the band. Although Tom starts off with dreams of making a rock documentary (you can watch the portaits he made on each of the band members), a different story emerges as tensions among the band members lead to unforeseen drama. Following the band from Berlin to Paris to Los Angeles to a 2010 Obama rally in Madison, Wisconsin, Mistaken for Strangers is not your typical road documentary.The film will screen on April 17 and will be followed by a special live performance by The National.
Festival packages go on sale to AmEx cardholders on Monday (3/4), which is one day before the entire slate of films for Tribeca will be announced. Festival passes go on sale to the general public following Monday (3/11). Individual tickets will go on sale 4/9 for AmEx cardholders, 4/14 for downtown residents and 4/15 to the general public.

Art Goblins are sort of Art Brut, and Art Goblins only sort of played in Brooklyn on Saturday night....
Art (Brut) Goblins @ Music Hall, NYC - Oct 20, 2007 (CRED)
"Art Goblins didn’t play their 9:15pm set because Eddie missed his flight and arrived to the venue late. When presented with the fact that they may not play, they decided to play an semi-plugged in set in the Music Hall lobby." [Metromix]
"Art Goblins missed their opening set but treated the crowd to a short impromptu set of Art Brut songs as everyone was leaving. With just an amp in the corner of the lobby and a screaming Eddie Argos, it was the perfect way to close out CMJ. We walked home and slept for 24 hours." [Obscene NYC]
Against Me! @ MHOW, Brooklyn, NYC - Sept 05, 2007 (CRED)
Though not completely finished inside, the new Brooklyn venue called Music Hall of Williamsburg opened with a show by David Dondero, Matt & Kim, and Against Me! last night. Already there are conflicting viewpoints in the comments. One positive:
just back from the show....it was super sweet! the venue isn't 100% done yet, but in solid shape and can't wait to see more shows in this space. for as much as people bitched about it opening a day late it's a far nicer and better venue (in every sense) then plenty of other "venues" i've been to in BK.One sort of negative:
The venue is nice, set up just like Bowery Ballroom and everything is brand new but sort of corny--leather couches, etc. It's a bit too slick and polished and made me miss the old Northsix. Also, the bathrooms are oddly situated right under the drums so it sounds like the floors are going to collapse. The security guys were assholes and gave a lot of people grief over minor bullshit. Honestly, I would probably only return there for bands I really really love who I couldn't see anywhere else--it wasn't a pleasant experience.The Patti Smith show has been rescheduled for tonight (Sept 6, 2007).
opening tonight? (via Gothamist)
The new Music Hall of Williamsburg was supposed to open last night with a show by Patti Smith. As you know, it didn't. The new first show at the new venue is set to start at 7PM tonight (in five hours). Tour-mates David Dondero, Matt & Kim and Against Me! are all on the bill, and it is sold out. So far, it's not cancelled, but according to Gothamist:
What we do know is that construction is still going on. We went over there less than an hour ago and as you can see from our pics -- the venue is still being built. We snuck inside for a minute and, granted we're no construction experts, we don't think there is any way this place is opening tonight. Looks like once it does, though, it'll be a nice space.Stay tuned.
In the meantime, Against Me!'s next planned NYC show has been revealed- November 17th at the OTHER new Bowery Presents venue (Terminal 5 - which is set to open in October). Tickets go on sale Friday. A video from Against Me!'s recent Letterman appearance, and all tour dates, below....
