A Friend of Unfair Park who's says s/he only comes to Unfair Park for our work-week-ending rock-and-roll-and send-off (fair enough) thought we might be interested in these shows just posted to The National's October 9 show at the House of Blues and the Blitzen Trapper-Fruit Bats double bill at the same venue just last Thursday.

Well, well, well. That's mighty kind, dear Friend. Big fan of all three bands, and these recordings sound terrific -- The National show especially. And the crowd sing-and-clapalong during "Fake Empire" translates well even at this distance; exhilarating, you might even say. And our Kiernan Maletsky, reviewing the Blitzen Trapper show on DC9 at Night, was quite right: There aren't many better show-openers these days than "Wild Mountain Nation."
