I'm late to the party on this one. But so glad I made it. I will freely admit that I was unaware of The National for too long. I remember reading about them on Dooce a while back. In particular her love for lead singer Matt Berninger. But I didn't really listen. She even wrote about them more than once for my benefit, and what did I do, I ignored her. Here. Here. And here. I guess I'm kind of bad at following blog recommendations. Which is ridiculous in the case, because I've pretty much LOVED every other band/musician Dooce has posted about. I think I was just been really busy those three days. I guess. Anyway, I got my act together after catching their Tiny Desk Concert and I fell in love. So now it's my turn to blog about them and hope that some of my readers ignore me and then find The National too. Enjoy!
