My fandom for The National came late in 2013 after I heard them live at The Ryman in Nashville. I had heard some songs and was definitely aware of them but something at that show clicked and I have been a big fan ever since. I can confidently say they are now my favorite band and there isn't a day that goes by where I don't hear at least one of their songs.
I was very fortunate to be adjacent to three of their shows in Columbus, Indianapolis and Chicago on their tour for the new album I Am Easy to Find. So I went to all 3 (4 shows if you count the secret show in Chicago at Revival) and brought my camera. What a great time and you can find some of my favorites below.
