The National

Recommended Posts

That does raise my hopes they might do a High Violet show for us in the UK. Or at least just play England. I presume any such show will be announced after this weekend's run.

I can see them doing a high violet set headlining the second stage 

I can’t.

The snippets I saw of the 2017 show looked decent enough and NME did give it a glowing review, but I did wonder if sub-headlining Foo Fighters was a strange fit, especially if they mainly played stuff from a then still-unreleased Sleep Well Beast. I didn't know, however, that somebody in the band had said they felt it could've been a better gig.

In this world where The National are good and Macca is not.

Wait does that mean a High Violet show or just that there will be a lot of High Violet in it? Ambiguous at best.

I ask because I'm thinking I might end up somewhere they are this summer, probs not Glastonbury. Me and The National have a doomed history there anyway.

I don't know but I've never heard 'Runaway' live ever and this is a special song for me so if I could get half a chance to hear it that would be like...wow!!!

“So... High Violet. We had a great time making it and we are very proud of that album. Truly. Anyway here’s Turtleneck”.

To be fair I like Turtleneck. But it would be a bit misplaced in such a set.

I was at the front and it was very MEH. Foo Fighters crowd and clashed with Avalanches, the problem was they played far too much stuff from the new album before it was released and lost most of the crowd, including me, a pretty big fan! Roll on Sunday in Leeds!

Yeah exactly. Turtleneck is dogshit. Last two albums are bang average. High Violet would be a dream.

Now now, let's not say anything rash. 

Sorry, I'd had a couple of beers. Not actually listened to the new one at length, but j just can't get into what I've heard. Ain't for me at all. High Violet on the other hand is a bloody masterpiece and would get me back to one of their shows.

C’mon dude. It’s pure tripe. 

The only song of theirs I actually dislike.

Nothing will compare to the Muzzy Izzet threatening to knife me on the Beni thread last time this topic came up.

Based on who's potentially lined up  - I cannot see a space for them.

I'm at Leeds on Sunday. For a northerner, I've rarely drank in the city. Any suggestions on establishments? Thinking of Meatliquor for lining the stomach.

Mojo, Belgrave Music Hall, Parkside Tavern are all fairly close decent drinking establishments

So when I went to see them in Copenhagen last week it was a bit of a meet up between old friends... So as a laugh we all wore turtlenecks. 

Not sure what we did for the reputation of Brits to the Danish.
