Last week, The National provided fans with some quarantine content by releasing their concert film The National – ‘High Violet’ Live From Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) on YouTube, and now they've revealed that they plan to continue to do something like this each Monday. According to the r/Indieheads Reddit, The National gave a statement that reads:
Last Monday was so much fun, we thought to ourselves 'why not host an exciting communal event every Monday in support of our crew?'. Please join us each week as we share content from our vaults including classic live sets, and/or some unseen or rarely seen footage to pass the time at home.
No word on what today's (4/6) will be yet, but you can tune in below at 5 PM ET to watch this week's "Exciting Communal Event."
The National are also promoting a GoFundMe campaign for their touring crew. They write:
Our crew are the lifeblood of our touring operation and have become family through the many years we’ve worked together. As uncertainty looms over the state of the live concert industry, we will direct all profits from merch sales through our webstore, new Cherry Tree enrollments, and sales from the Cherry Tree members-only store to support our crew members throughout this crisis to the best of our ability.
Watch here at 5 PM:
UPDATE: It was The National's set at 2013's Hurricane Festival. If you missed it "live," you can watch the archive now:
