Video: The National Perform Sorrow Live @ Brooklyn Academy of Music, 15 May 2010

The National have announced a full Australian tour for February 2014, despite their quick visit to the Splendour in the Grass Festival last month. Woo-hoo! Vocalist Matt Berninger is likely to walk among you in the crowd, but please don’t grab his crotch or he might smack you!

This will be the first tour of Australia for The National since their album Trouble Will Find Me was released in May 2013. Get out your pink rabbit suit for this one. Who are you kidding? I know you have one!

I am a noisy noodle hailing from Melbourne, Australia who loves listening to noise in all forms, but preferably in music, TV and film. I’ve moonlighted on community radio at SYN-FM many years ago when I was still a “youth”. My mission is to promote live music (get off your bum and see something!), highlight interesting TV shows that are ignored by the ratings, expose some cool films and to not go deaf trying!
