The National

The National ended up playing Friday night, Brassland night, at the High Violet Annex, the temporary venue next door to Other Music setup to promote their new record. Before the National were new Brassland signees Buke & Gass who went on around 7:15pm and played for about 20 minutes. Doveman was second and played with the Dessner brothers and Bryan Devendorf for another 20 minute set. The National hit the stage just before 9pm and played eight songs finishing up at 9:45pm. The band hung around and chatted with fans and signed autographs/posed for pictures. Their set list is posted below.

On Saturday, the final night of the High Violet Annex, the first 70 or so people who showed up (at 6PM sharp as advertised) were given a surprise ticket to the BAM show happening that night, and they were in turn bussed there on the “miracle bus”. Pictures, video and a full report from BAM coming shortly HERE.

Tuesday night the High Violet Annex space had DJs. Wednesday night Inlets, Zachary Cale, Helado Negro, Julianna Barwick, The Luyas, Talk Normal, Arlt and Martha Wainwright all played. Thursday had performances by the Antlers, Phosphorescent, Sharon Van Etten and members of the National scoring films. The National also found time to play Letterman that same week.

The band has lots of other shows coming up including Radio City in June and Prospect Park in July.

More pictures from the Annex, the setlist and a video of the band playing “Apartment Story” are below…
