DrSternlove and I went to the Enmore Theatre on Saturday to see The National do their thing, and it was absolutely the best thing. They were everything I’d expected and much more. One day I will write a more thoughtful love letter about my love of The National, which I played in almost constant rotation during 2010.
Bernard Zuel, current doyen of Australian music critics and correspondent for the Sydney Morning Herald, hasn’t managed that big thinking love letter yet either. His review of the show in today’s Herald is the kind of letter thirteen year old boys write to beautiful girls in fifth form. And it is on the money, gets the experience exactly right.
