So who stayed until the end of the Walkmen's set?
 
 Did it get any better?
 
 Is it just me, or are they starting to sound a little Strokes-y?

Well I resurfaced out of the backbar about a song and a half in. I thought it sounded really good. they played the hit off of the first album next. Sounded great much better then when I had seen them before.  The next song made me yawn and we returned to the bar.
 
 I really dont think the walkmen are my thing. The guy does look like Walkie though.

I know I'm posting this five days late, but loved The National.  *Really* wish they were coming back.
 
 When they were finished, I headed to DC9 for what was a WAY too great Thursday night of lots of free booze, a great DJ set with all kinds of stuff.  And, oh my god, even a little dancing -- to alternative music, in DC?!?
 
 Because The National ended so late, I thought the whole show would be much later, so I did head back to the 9:30 Club at 11:45 hoping to catch a couple Walkmen songs, but instead hit the crowds streaming to U looking for cabs.
 
 Any word on Weird War?

Brooklyn-by way of-Cincinnati rock act the National has signed a worldwide deal with Beggars Banquet. The group's third studio album is expected in spring 2005. The National's two prior full-lengths, including 2003's acclaimed "Sad Songs for Dirty Lovers," were issued by New York independent label Brassland.
 
 "We found out in May that Roger Trust, who runs Beggars Banquet, was a big fan of 'Sad Songs for Dirty Lovers' and he showed up at our show in London a month later," group member Aaron Dessner tells Billboard.com. "The next day we spent a few hours at the Beggars office in London, which was really impressive, and then Roger came over to see us play in Paris a few nights later. It just felt like a perfect match for us and them."
 
 Dessner says the group is in the midst of recording new material, including tracks like "Mr. November," "Minor Stars of Rome," "Abel" and "The Thrilling of Claire." No shows are planned until an Oct. 3 appearance at New York's Bowery Ballroom, with fellow Ohio rock combo the Black Keys.

I'm really digging their new EP ~ Cherry Tree. Got it?
 
 That would be a muy cool show in NY.
