The National – Enmore Theatre – 08/01/2011
106 DAYS TO GO
It might be to early to say gig of the year, but the National have thrown down an early marker with their storming set at the Enmore Theatre.
For the first time in ages I missed getting front row standing tickest but yet this wasn’t a problem as The National’s sound filled the Theatre and some more. These boys have some cracking songs, amazing lyrics and are a tight live outfit.
They ran through most of High Violet chucking out Anyones Ghost early on, a highlight was Alligators, Mr November, and they ended with an acapella version of Vanderlay.
A truly memorable night. I’d you have the chance and haven’t already seen them make sure you catch up with The National. They are the band to see.
P.S Not sure why the photo has chopped off their heads, I have included it below
