The National @ Mercury Lounge
The National: Live from the Artists Den - First Look (by ArtistsDen)
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. 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.
