The National in VT March 7 (?)
« on: February 23, 2004, 05:38:00 pm »
Starting a new thread because this is an alert of sorts...
 
 The National have themselves listed as playing in  Vermont on March 7, although the Black Cat still has them opening for Alaska! on the same date.
 ???
 
 Sun. 07 Mar 2004
 CLUB METRONOME
 188 Main Street
 Burlington, VT
 
 It makes sense they'll be in VT based on the way their tour moves from the Thursday 9:30 Club show with the Walkmen.
 
 Just an alert that if you want to see them, Thursday may be the only chance

i don't know if i should point this out or not... but there's National vid posted on the  Brassland website.  It's shot in a hotel room with various band members sitting in the bathtub...  Are they considered HOTT by any chance?
 
 Was considering come down, but Kosmette needs a little cocooning today after a crappy week...

From the horses gob
 
 
 "Hey Dr. Mark,
 Glad to hear you are coming out on Thur. ... hoping you have bought tix in
 advance ... as it may (or may already have?) sold-out (due to the immense
 popularity of the Walkmen + Weird War most likely, if so).
 
 Sorry about the mis-info on the Black Cat ... we were booked there earlier,
 but things got shifted around w/ our bookings. We won't be there that night
 unfortunately.
 
 See you thursday night. Keep it real.
 /the national"

Is this seriously a show which might sell out?!?  I'm planning to get there about 8.

I noticed that they gave The Microphones live album a 6.1 today, I gave it a 6.2 a week or two ago on Big Yawn, see, I don't do everything the same as pitchfork, oh and their review also featured better writing

I didnt think it would sell out, but I dont really like the walkmen. I bought my tickets a couple of weeks ago as I really didnt want to miss the show.

Are the Walkmen better than, or at least different from, Jonathan Fire Eater? I remember seeing them years ago, and thinking they were horrible. And now hear they are receiving major hype.
