The National – Live @ The Wiltern 5/22

Two years in a row seeing this band at the Wiltern. If you’re not familiar with The National, I suggest you look into them. (I know I’m a little slow in posting this…)

A several years ago, I heard Wasp Nest and was instantly hooked. After high praise for their Albums “Boxer” and “Alligator” the band recently released “High Violet.” Initially the album seemed like a distant third to the previously mentioned records… but over the past month, it has really grown on me.

The other cool thing was seeing Matthew Fox (“LOST”) in between acts. During last year’s show we saw Scarlett Johansson & Ryan Reynolds too.
