SECOND FINEST ACT OF GRACIOUSNESS BY A MAIN-STAGE ACT
During the National’s late-afternoon slot, when the rain was at its most pounding and the thunder its most ominous, scruffy, introverted frontman Matt Berninger left the stage and descended into the slop to commune with the diehards during “Mr. November,” moaning/shouting the doleful chorus, “I wish that I believed in fate / I wish I didn’t sleep so late / I used to be carried in the arms of cheerleaders,” as the crowd engulfed him and shouted along, until the lines became a defiant, loser’s-lounge celebration of being in the wrong place at the wrong time but toasting the occasion regardless.

Members of The National (Bryce Dessner, Aaron Dessner, & Matt Berninger) and friends will debut The Long Count at BAM on October 28, 30 & 31, 2009.
