The National @ Pitchfork

thenationalpitchfork@AndyShore Festival Crashers crossed paths with the National a few times last summer. They played at Langerado, took the stage before R.E.M. and Modest Mouse at the United Center and played Lollapalooza. I don’t even remember if I saw them at Langerado, but was bored by their opening set at the UC and unimpressed by them while waiting to shoot NIN at Lolla. Usually a band that has horns and strings would be my thing, but something about the National never won me over.

 

I  headed over the National, after shooting the Black Lips and wanting to move away from their noisy racket. To my surprise, they sounded better than they had the previous occasions. Perhaps my listening standards had been lowered by the rest of the indie rock bands at Pitchfork, but I enjoyed them more this time. That is until their set closing biggest hit song, “Fake Empire.” Lead singer Matt Berninger has a pleasant baritone voice most of the time, but does a sort of scream/singing that pains my ears during that tune.
