The National Tour

Heads up, The National fans: the band has just announced plans for a short series of North American tour dates to be played this spring. They’ll start with a performance on March 25 at The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, and then move through Toronto, ON; Grand Rapids, MI; Chicago, IL; Austin, TX (as a part of Austin City Limits); Berkeley, CA; and Atlanta, GA at the Shaky Knees Festival. The tour is in support of their new film, Mistaken for Strangers. In addition to the tour dates, the band has also announced a Valentine’s Day cover song contest: fans are instructed to submit videos covering The National’s “I Need My Girl”. A winning video will be chosen on Valentine’s Day. Tickets for all of their shows are on sale now.
