    guys. See this tour. 3 shows in, this is the best I’ve seen the band in 17 years. All cylinders. Seriously. No hyperbole.

    bummed that they aren't coming here (KC) on this tour, but there is a good chance that we might be moving back to TX. If so, I'm definitely going to the Dallas show.
    I LOVE MUSIC.

    If you went to all 4 shows in Chicago you would have definitely got your moneys worth. So many different songs. Incredible!

    Seeing them in Philly soon.
    Don't really know all their albums and I kind of listen to spotify playlists. Can't wait for the show and to just rock out.
    Wouldn't it be funny if the world ended in 2010, with lots of fire?

    We have tickets for both L.A. shows....I thought about selling one night, but it seems as if they mix things up enough to warrant going to both shows.

    Yeah, don’t skip either of a 2 night run

    I would go to both based on the Washington 2 nighter!

    Just recently(really recently actually) have we discovered this band first with an awesome cover of Morning Dew. Do they rock hard on some of their material? They’re in Greater Vancouver outdoors on June 5.

    Yes, they do have a few harder numbers. But most of their material is about 50% upbeat. 

    Here s a recent show if you want a sample of their live sound, which differs greatly from their album versions.

    Thanks for your input Tim. I’m going to listen to as much material as I can and hope to attend Monday’s show. Does anybody have a list of core tunes they’re almost certain to play?

    Mr November
    i need my girl
    fake empire
    terrible love
    bloodbuzz Ohio
    the system only dreams…

    are all usually bolted on, at least every time I have seen them and the song was released (5 or6 shows since 2007)

    Have a look here and it should give you a rough idea for the newer stuff like tropic morning news https://www.setlist.fm/setlists/the-national-53d69b79.html

    No problem, have fun if you do go. They have always been good value for money in my opinion. If you do enjoy them then definitely delve deep into the catalogue. Sad songs>Cherry Tree>Alligator>Boxer>Virginia is one of my favourite runs of lp/eps released by any band. It doesn’t all rock hard as you were asking but they do have their moments, almost everything else will creep up on you unsuspectingly after a couple of run throughs and become random ear worms.

    It would be great. I’m not holding my breath. But I think this indicates a follow up is coming sooner than later.

    It took me seeing both bands this year, but I can say with 100% certainty, The National have far surpassed PJ as my favorite band.
