About Last Night | The National
Park Avenue Armory | New York, NY
May 7th, 2013
The soaring, majestic Drill Hall in New York's historic Park Avenue Armory provided
an awe-inspiring setting for the National's taping for Live from the Artists Den on
Tuesday night. The massive space, designed to resemble a classic European train station,
hosted 900 invited guests, who witnessed a twenty-song set featuring the debut of numerous
songs from the Brooklyn-based band's forthcoming album, Trouble Will Find Me, along with
blistering versions of such favorites as "Fake Empire," "Bloodbuzz Ohio," and "Terrible Love."
This special performance, for which the National was augmented by horns and a string section,
will air this summer on public television as part of the sixth season of the acclaimed concert series.
