    Very excited to have scored tickets to see The National on Thursday night Jan. 25 at Irving Plaza for Grammy Week! Can’t wait! (The first time I ever saw/heard The National was at Irving Plaza on Dec. 31, 2005, almost exactly 12 years and one month ago!)

    have the best time! can’t believe they’re playing there – had many good nights there, but never expected them back there!

    Thanks, LogicalHarm! It should be hot, sweaty, cramped, crowded–and totally amazing! I can’t believe I’m seeing them again in such a small venue, and in the very place where I heard them for the first time! I expect to get wine spilled on me and sweat dripped on me from the stage! 🙂

    Post-show report: It wasn’t hot or sweaty (or at least not very), and it was not uncomfortably crowded or cramped, but it was thoroughly fantastic! The crowd was completely into it, the band sounded great, and Irving Plaza is an incredible venue to see them in. I could do this every night!

    The show was everything! My head will be playing it over and over for a long time.

    A few months late in replying to this, but what a great night it was! Here’s a link to my video of their cover of Peggy-O that night – we were so excited to finally see it live!
