The National have sort of become a go-to influence for punk bands looking to write prettier records lately. They're a huge influence on Touche Amore and Pianos Become the Teeth have namedropped them too. Now Joyce Manor have covered them...
The NYC-area shows had three members of The National (including Aaron Dessner, who had to sit out the other tour dates), Josh Kaufman, Conrad Doucette, Dawn Landes' band The Bandanda Splits, Sam Cohen, and more.
Steve Kimock, who's been in a number of Dead-related bands including Bob Weir's Kingfish and RatDog, and Jon Shaw are on the tour in Aaron Dessner's place. Check out setlists from the tour so far, plus videos of Matt Berninger joining in LA for four Grateful Dead songs.
