I’ll have my review of the National’s fantastic show online in a few days, but here’s a sneak peek at the fantastic ending. They brought out all the performers who stuck around for the final day to sing “Vanderlyle Crybaby Geeks” with no vocal mikes. It turned into a giant singalong with the audience, Owen Pallett, Little Scream, Sharon Van Etten, Richard Parry, and Megafaun. It was a beautiful moment from a special festival. Can’t wait for 2012’s edition of MusicNOW.
Owen Pallett: “the Great Elsewhere”
Cincinnati’s MusicNOW festival is back this year with a fantastic lineup (as always). They’ve got the National, Sharon Van Etten, Owen Pallett, Tim Hecker and a bunch of other great folks. Tickets are on sale now. Pro tip: if you’re planning on seeing the National and Sharon Van Etten’s show, buy tickets before you finish reading this sentence.
