The jam-packed Red Hot compilation comes to life 5/3 at Radio City Music Hall with Dave Sitek, Dirty Projectors, Feist, My Brightest Diamond, the National, Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, and more to be announced. Tickets go on sale Friday 3/13 via Ticketmaster. We will see you there. Also, if you remember when we first started listening to Dark’s tracklist, folks were pretty much unanimously into the great Nico Muhly-arranged National track, “So Far Around the Bend.” Now, if you don’t already own the comp, you can take the song home with you:
The National – “So Far Around The Bend” (MP3)
Dark Was The Night is out via 4AD.
UPDATE: Feist posted a flier that lists Grizzly Bear and David Byrne, too…
BV reports that those performers are not yet confirmed.
