Check out The National rocking the Letterman stage last night, performing their track "Conversation 16" taken fromtheir great album, High Violet which featured in a lot of Top albums of 2010 lists. Now is it just me or do I spot another familier face on stage but in the wrong band setup? As you may or may not know, Richard Parry of Arcade Fire is also good friends with the guys in The National and has helped them out with parts in the past and stepped to the plate again last night.
Check out why The National have a good rep on the live circuit singing their meloncholy to the nation/world, depending on how you see it. And the combo of two great bands stepping into different setups is also a nice thing to see. Enjoy.
