The National, New York’s own musical literati -- really! several members have backgrounds in boutique publishing -- will grace the inordinately tiny Studio at Webster Hall tomorrow night. (The studio is the basement space of the historic club.)
The High Violet rockers will drop by the East Village to tape an episode of MTV’s Live IN NYC series. A few, scant tickets went on sale this morning and immediately sold out. Brooklyn Vegan is currently giving away one pair of tickets.
If you aren’t one of the, oh, 47 people who can fit into the Studio at Webster Hall, fear not: the footage will be posted on Monday, Feb. 21 on MTV. Or buy a JetBlue ticket and catch them play with the Arcade Fire on April 22, 24, or 25 at the UIC Pavilion in Chicago; that’s the closest they’ll come to playing our ‘hood in the near future.
