Illustrious indie rockers the National have announced a short string of shows kicking off at the end of November and wrapping up right before the Holidays ramp up. The short tour is only stopping in Seattle, San Francisco, Austin, Chicago, Toronto, Montreal, and New York. Or you know, only the cool cities. Eat it.
Also, the band is touring with some fine, fine people, including Local Natives, Neko Case, War on Drugs and Wye Oak. See you at one of the shows. I'll be the wino crying.
