Saw them early 08 at Langerado Fest in Florida (RIP). Last song was 'Past is a Grotesque Animal' - Kevin Barnes was carried out on stage in a coffin full of shaving cream. They set the coffin upright, and he came out singing while people in costume popped would come up and balloons full of glitter over him. Once the vocals stopped and the song got to the end jam, he jumped in the crowd and rubbed shaving cream and glitter from his body all over everyone. Awesome awesome set.

Totally different vibe than the other new tracks played on tour last year. Much more upbeat and guitar driven. Curious if this will be on the record.

"All we gotta do is be brave and be kind" is some sage fucking advice these days.

The new songs The National played last tour were pretty great - looking forward to the new album immensely. Also Tim Darcy solo album.

Not advocating that there should be, but will there ever be a critical re-evaluation of Dave Matthews? We've seen Phish, Brand New, blink-182 all get their dues in recent years (deserved or not).

Would rather Stereogum stop trying to make Brand New a thing. I survived the "Seventy Times Seven" away messages one time already.

When "On a Neck, On a Spit" gets going about 2:00 minutes in, goddamn. Favorite Grizzly Bear song no doubt.

First time I saw them was in 09, and by then, 'All Hands and the Cook' was a total monster live. Definitely recommend checking out the iTunes Sessions with it.

TWFM > High Violet for me too. High Violet sounds a little too fussed over and has a few songs that haven't aged well (looking at you 'Conversation 16'). TWFM sounds much more natural and has strong songs, I think.

August 4, 2016 on The National’s Matt Berninger Talks “Weird, Math-y, Electronic-y” New Album
Great read! One of the big reasons I think the big festivals are struggling for turnout is a lack of intriguing headliners. I love Pearl Jam, and seeing them at lolla 07 was a huge treat because it was their only US show that year. Seeing them headline bonnaroo when I can catch them at another tour stop this year? Not worth the hassle.
