“I still owe money to the money to the money I owe. I never thought about love when I thought about home.”
On July 23, definitive indie-rockers The National light up our stage with Lucy Dacus.
During their sixteen-year career The National have sold over 1.7 million albums worldwide and have established themselves as mainstays of arenas and festivals with sold-out performances and headlining slots around the world.
Their most recent album and accompanying film I Am Easy To Find was met with critical acclaim, and 2017’s Sleep Well Beast won Best Alternative Music Album at the Grammy Awards and achieved #1’s in the UK, Ireland, Portugal and Canada. 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).
Lucy Dacus is done thinking small. Following her 2016 debut, No Burden, which won her unanimous acclaim as one of rock’s most promising new voices, Dacus returned in 2018 with Historian, a remarkably assured 10-track statement of intent. It finds her unafraid to take on the big questions—the life-or-death reckonings, and the ones that just feel that way. It’s a record full of bracing realizations, tearful declarations and moments of hard-won peace, expressed in lyrics that feel destined for countless yearbook quotes and first tattoos.
