Music: The National play out

The National are in London, performing last night at Electric Ballroom and tonight at Royal Albert Hall.

But the big news for us is a show May 15, a benefit for the Red Hot Organization, at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. Documentary makers D.A. Pennebaker (Don't Look Back, Monterey Pop and The War Room, among other amazing films) and Chris Hegedus will be piloting a live-to-the-internet simulcast of the concert on YouTube.

Starting today (May 6) at 10am advance tickets for the BAM show will be available through an exclusive pre-sale site (the password is VIOLET - all caps). The general public on-sale begins tomorrow (May 7) at 10AM from BAM's website.

The band's newest album, High Violet, comes out next week. Through May 11 it's being streamed at
