The National dudes are having a banner year. First the Crossing Brooklyn Ferry festival, then performing “The Rains of Castamere” on the second season of Game of Thrones and they are curating the UK edition of All Tomorrow’s Parties. Now the band have band have announced (via Twitter) that they’ll play before for President Barack Obama at a speech in Des Moines, IA on Saturday, September 1.

The band are longtime Obama supporters, having designed an election t-shirt back in 2008 and lending their song “Fake Empire” to his campaign.

The picture of The National above, by the way, is one of many great BrooklynVegan shots that are on display at our “480 Pixels” exhibit at 92YTribeca that is viewable through September 6. The gallery is open from 8 AM – 3 PM this week.
