I brought my two daughters to the show (first time seeing The National for my oldest, my youngest’s third show) and what an incredible night it was. The setlist was perfect, some of my daughter’s fave songs are About Today, Slow Show, Pink Rabbits & Apartment Story and she was thrilled that we got them all. She loves when they end the show with Vanderlyle and we are all still in shock that Matt jumped the rail and stood next to her. Such an incredible night that I got to share with my kids, unfortunately my husband wasn’t there with us. He and I drove out to Pittsburgh on Saturday morning and we ended up in the same exact spot I had in Queens. Amazing two nights and now I have to somehow wait until December to see them again in Philly.
Here’s my video of Vanderlyle in Forest Hills – a couple days later and it still seems surreal.
