Crazy between work and holiday planning. Tonight I will see The National at the Beacon Theater....the show will be shown on the internet:

From the band - "Thanks so much for your support over the past two years. We've had such a great time playing shows for all of you and we're excited to be finishing up at home in New York City tomorrow night. To celebrate, we're doing a live webcast from the Beacon Theater so you can share in the last night of the High Violet tour! On Saturday, December 17th, at 9 pm EST, visit www.americanmary.com to watch the show."



"Stay out super late tonight
picking apples, making pies
put a little something in our lemonade and take it with us
we’re half-awake in a fake empire
we’re half-awake in a fake empire

Tiptoe through our shiny city
with our diamond slippers on
do our gay ballet on ice
bluebirds on our shoulders
we’re half-awake in a fake empire
we’re half-awake in a fake empire

Turn the light out say goodnight
no thinking for a little while
lets not try to figure out everything at once
It’s hard to keep track of you falling through the sky
we’re half-awake in a fake empire
we’re half-awake in a fake empire"


peace.a.chance

I've never heard of The National before. Vocally, even lyrically, it sounds to me a bit of a cross between Leonard Cohen and Tom Waits. Now for something completely different. Happy Holidays.
