Last week, The National celebrated the announcement of the 10th Anniversary High Violet Triple LP release with a YouTube premiere of their D.A. Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus-directed film ‘The National – ‘High Violet’ Live From Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM),’ from May 10th, 2010. Fans enjoyed the nearly two and a half hour show while members of the band stopped by the chat room to say hi.
They’ve now announced an ongoing series, ‘An Exciting Communal Event,’ where they will surprise fans every Tuesday 7AM AEST with even more content from their vaults, including classic live sets, and some unseen and little-seen footage for fans to enjoy during this time at home.
The series aims to drive donations to The National roadcrew financial relief cause – there will be avenues to donate highlighted on YouTube during the events.
