The National / Courtney Barnett @ Prospect Park | $60
jeu. 13 juin à 00:00
Let’s see The National and Courtney Barnett rock out at Prospect Park on June 12. These two acts under one stage is the perfect way to kick-off summer. Nature, brews and tunes!! You’ll also be doing a good deed since proceeds from ticket sales will go towards protecting women’s reproductive rights. Yeah!!! This show will sell out so grab a ticket soon. BACKGROUND: Both individually and collectively The National's members have been involved in countless artistic, charitable, and socio-political pursuits. The group released A Lot of Sorrow documenting their collaboration with installation artist Ragnar Kjartansson, which took place at MOMA's PS1 and saw the band play their song "Sorrow" for six hours in front of a live audience. The group is behind the Red Hot benefit albums Dark Was The Night and Day Of The Dead, and the compilation boxed set titled 7-Inches for Planned Parenthood. Band members have received a Golden Globe Nomination for work on the score of the 2015 film Revenant; founded or played a major part in Boston Calling, MusicNow, Eaux Claires, and Haven Festivals; participated heavily in both Obama Presidential Campaigns; and much more. 2013 also saw the theatrical release of their documentary, Mistaken For Strangers, set to the backdrop of the band's 2010 release High Violet. The documentary was chosen to premiere on the opening night of the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival followed by a theatrical release in the U.S. and worldwide distribution. Over their 16-year career the band has sold more than 1.7 million albums in the U.S. alone. The National consists of Matt Berninger (vocals) fronting two pairs of brothers: Aaron (guitar, bass, piano) and Bryce Dessner (guitar, piano), and Scott (bass, guitar) and Bryan Devendorf (drums). Courtney Barnett is one of the most distinctive and compelling voices in indie rock, a singer-songwriter who mixes deeply insightful observations with devastating self-assessment. With countless awards in her home of Australia as well as Grammy and BRIT nominations, fawning press and an adoring audiences, Barnett's rise to global prominence feels both unprecedented and important. 2017 saw the release of the wonderful album Lotta Sea Lice, an introspective but beautiful album of duets with Kurt Vile and a gorgeous place-holder while we awaited the release of her world-weary-but-fierce sophomore solo album Tell Me How You Really Feel in 2018 WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A-Tod1_tZdU
