The National @ BAM 2/22

My 6th National Concert happens to be at BAM. Although it was a seated audience, BAM harbors a nice ambiance. My Brightest Diamond was the opening act...I find her to be a mix of Bjork/PJ Harvey/Imogen Heap/J. Newsom.

Nevertheless, an awesome concert with two encores, and thanks to Brian (talkingtowalls) for the pair of tickets...they were sold out and we got them less than 24 hours ago! Furthermore, was escorted out by security after being falsely accused of recording videos. Damn...missed 1:30 minutes till the end of "Abel" Well, it sucks that we couldn't make it to the 2/23 show even though we'll be in the Fort Greene/Dumbo Area....phuck me!

By the way, it was the usual setlist. Although there was no "ALL THE WINE", my National withdrawal had been cured...temporarily. :)

Baby We'll Be Fine
Slow Show
Secret Meeting
Mistaken For Strangers
Squalor Victoria
Wasp's Nest

It was my birthday and I went with 5 friends to the show. I think they enjoyed it even though they're unfamiliar with the band. Are you planning on running the Brooklyn HM?

LOVE your taste in music. I'm trying to incorporate music into my blog, but haven't gotten that far.

Thanks for the pics and the set list!

Check out my blog if you have a chance.
