Video: The National Perform Live In NYC

The National visited Webster Hall’s tiny downstairs Studio venue for an intimate performance, taped for MTV’s Live In NYC series (Warpaint, Matt & Kim, The Drums, and Sleigh Bells are among the previous guests). Check out some of the video below. It’s mostly songs from High Violet, and the “Terrible Love” performance is especially fun, since Matt Berninger enters the audience and crowd surfs for exactly two seconds toward the end:

“Bloodbuzz Ohio”

“Afraid Of Everyone”

“Conversation 16″

“Fake Empire”

“Terrible Love”
