The National

After having Bob Weir make a special appearance during their set at Outside Lands, the National made their way south for a haunting set at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Matt Berninger couldn’t help himself by quipping that it looked dead out there. Some of the many highlights included “Conversation 16″ which had the crowd cheer loudly when Berninger sang the lyric “Hollywood summer,” a caustic version of “Mr. November” that saw Berninger roam freely into the crowd, and a dead silent audience taking in the all acoustic rendition of “Vanderlyle Crybaby Geeks.” 4AD labelmates Daughter provided support. Check out the photos in the gallery above and the setlist below.

  1. Ignorant comment warning: How are they allowed to do sets like this in a cemetery? Isn’t that…uncouth? Or is this cemetery just so old that no one really cares anymore?

    Don’t know if I’d want The National crooning over my dead father’s grave.

  2. Hollywood Forever isn’t really a cemetery anymore since they’re not allowed to sell plots. It’s more of a landmark now than an actual cemetery, although there are still some graves nearby.
