Terminal 5

“They opened with a strong, stirring rendition of “Start A War” (Featuring the immortal lyrics: “You were always weird but I never had to hold you by the edges like I do now. Walk away now. And you’re gonna start a war.”) and they never looked back. Highlights included stellar performances of “Bloodbuzz, Ohio,” “Vanderlyle Crybaby Geeks,” “Fake Empire” and “Mr. November” some charming, semi spastic arm waving gestures by the tall skinny lead singer with the wonderfully soulful baritone voice and a delicious veggie dog from the roof deck. They closed the show with “Terrible Love”–the opening song from their newest album. The only disappointment for me was they they did not perform “Racing Like a Pro” or the magnificent “Gospel.” But it was a really great night. And a great live musical christening of my second half century.” [Teddy Vegas]

Two days after their Prospect Park show, The National headlined the fourth SPIN/ZYNC party at Terminal 5 (The National’s 2nd ZYNC gig this year). Openers at the Thursday night show were Kurt Vile and Suckers. NYC Taper taped the show and you can download it at his site. More pictures and the National’s setlist, below…
