    Can't wait for this Wiltern show! I saw them in May at the 9:30 clun in D.C. They rocked and had like 7-8 musicians on stage at all times (horn sections etc.). The one song I'm dying to hear that they didn't do at that show is "All the Wine" so here's hoping they play it!

    Great show! I saw them in May and I thought this was an overall better and more energetic show. "Mr. November" was great as usual with Matt running into the stands to sing the song. Their new songs sounded great too. "All the Wine" was a nice treat too since I didn't hear it last time.

    Awesome show. Well worth the 11 hours of driving. Matt was drinking wine throughout the entire show. Right before "all the wine" he handed his bottle of wine in a bucket down to the crowd.




    Mr. November was pretty fucking great as Matt sang in the crowd and all the way back to the soundboard. The passion and intensity he exhibits during a performance is really a site to be seen.

    The Wiltern had fantastic accoustics. As a bonus it was great seeing some of PAW before the show. Those guys party all weekend every weekend apparently.








    The crowd was pretty great as well. I can't wait to return to the venue next Saturday!

    Great story... As Matt was heading back to the stage after Mr. Nov he has to climb over the ledges. I was right at the back of the front section, and he went over the ledge right next to me. However, he since was a little tipsy that night he started to fall over. I caught him though, which was pretty darn awesome. So, in short, I held Matt Berninger in my arms

    Posted these in the Outside Lands thread, but in case people don't go in there, here's a few pics from their set this past weekend in San Francisco ... my favorite set of the weekend.

    I saw the National at the Wiltern a couple of weeks ago. They put on an amazing show. That lead singer has a lot of energy and the rest of the band are very talented musicians.

    People are starting to rumor that Pavement and the National will be touring together for the European shows. I guess we'll see what pans out.

    Yep, the password is under the tour dates on their tour page. I'll be at the Wiltern show for certain and possibly the San Diego show too. Their last show at the Wiltern was all kinds of awesome, see youtubes and set list above.

    I'm considering going to see them at the Big Ears Festival in Knoxville. Kind of a cool concept for a festival and a pretty decent lineup.

    I would much rather see them at Spreckels, I love that venue. I am so fucking tired of seeing shows at The Wiltern.

    Spreckels is all seated, right? Fuck that noise, i'll take the show at the Wiltern. Excellent theater with great sound and no seats on the floor.

    Ticket purchased for the Wiltern and still debating Spreckels but it's $10 more, all seated and it's a Sunday night so i'm not sure i'm going to the SD show.
