Seven Bands To See At Boston Calling: #6, The National

Hellooooo again! We’re back for our third run with Boston Calling and we’re as excited as ever, so we’ve decided to bring back our “Seven Bands To See” feature! The lineup this time around is as great as it has ever been, and the weekend is shaping up to be the biggest one yet. So, here’s who to keep an eye out for!

On our list so far:#7. Sonicbids Winner/Gentlemen Hall

Today we talk about our #6 pick, The National.

Though they hail from Cincinnati, The National have a longstanding relationship with Boston Calling. Not only did the band headline the first festival back in May 2013, but vocalist Aaron Dessner has helped curate the festival’s lineups. Now, they’re back for their second term as headliner, closing out Friday’s show. Their performance will be great regardless, that’s a given. But be sure to watch, or else Dessner might not build us a lineup for May!

For fans of: Interpol, the Airborne Toxic Event, The Strokes 
For a taste, check out: “Don’t Swallow the Cap,” “Sea of Love,” “Fake Empire”
When you can see them: Friday, 9:30pm, Jetblue Stage
