XPN Welcomes The National

Academy of Music

240 S. Broad Street Philadelphia PA 19102
  • Thursday September 8th 2011

Formed during the post-punk revival of the late 1990s, The National takes its inspiration from country-rock, Americana, indie rock, and Britpop. The Brooklyn-based indie supergroup has released some of the most critically-lauded albums of the past decade—from their eponymous 2001 debut to their fifth album, High Violet (2010), which cracked the top five in both America and the U.K., adding to the band's already-considerable fan base.

With special guests:
Yo La Tengo
Wye Oak
