I missed The National playing at Brooklyn's Barclay's center last Wednesday June 5th. It sounds like it was a great show, but that it was a large venue and they felt the need to perform like a touring band, with loud jamming sounds. 

In contrast, I heard NPR's Tiny Desk Concert of The National playing 4 songs. I have been listening to this constantly for the last couple of days. I love the intimacy of this. If you have the time, listen to their version of Pink Rabbits tarting 9:00 minutes in. 


Now I can't wait to watch the documentary made by his brother...
