The National’s New Album and Tour

My Holy Trinity of the 2000’s was The Hold Steady, Drive-By Truckers and The National.  And we’ve had news about all 3 bands already this year.  Some good…they are all releasing new albums this year.  And some bad…Franz Nicolay going off on his own.  But this is probably the most exciting news yet.  The National‘s new album will be out in May and they have announced some tour dates!  Nothing about Denver yet (holding my breath for Red Rock), but all my SF peeps can see them at the new(er) Fox Theater in Oakland on May 27th and those of you in SD can see them at Spreckels on the 23rd..
