Brooklyn was well represented on last night’s episode of Saturday Night Live. Not only did Girls mastermind Lena Dunham serve as host, but the borough’s finest outfit provided the musical entertainment. The National made their SNL debut with a pair of jaw-dropping performances: “Graceless” and “I Need My Girl” from their latest LP, Trouble Will Find Me. Catch the replay below.

The National….really? I don’t know what kind of gen X poser band this is, or how they conned their way onto SNL, but these guys profoundly suck! I guess any hipsters with vintage guitars can show up and NOT know how to play them. What is up with that lead singer? Did the real one get sick and his Dad filled in for him? Guaranteed no one will know who these guys are by the end of the summer. Pathetic.

Way to bring the dumb, Katnip. Seriously? They’re playing 4 nights at the Chicago Theatre next month so popularity does not seem lacking. And the Dessners are amazing guitar players.

They just had the #3 selling record in the entire world. I’m not beginning to understand your comment about “no one knowing who they are?” Tell me you’re kidding…please.
