Found out yesterday that the band I'm now obsessed with opened for REM in 2007 or 2008 or some year in which I SAW REM PLAY LIVE. But I didn't see the opening band.
Q: Should one see opening bands?
A: I gave up on them after 1998.
Q: But you missed The National, en resultant.
A: C'est vrai. C'est vrai, et c'est triste.
A: I'm old and old and lame.
But: The National are so so good. We're all already doomed, so let's just accept it. I love this song and like this video.
