Watch: The National w/ Sufjan Stevens play Letterman (5/14)

on May 14, 2010, 8:03am

Following The National‘s appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman last night, one which featured the Brooklyn outfit performing High Violet‘s “Afraid of Everyone” while being accompanied by the equally talented Sufjan Stevens (he sang backup vocals), you can hear Dave proclaim, “Man… wow!” I’m not sure anything is a more appropriate description of last night’s performance, or any of The National’s live performances for that matter, than those two words. As often the case, Matt Berninger’s crew has the unique ability of creating and performing music that grabs minds and hearts, twist ’em all around, only to release them following some sort of overwhelming climax (in this case, that comes around the 3:08 mark) and thus prompting, as exemplified by Dave, responses such as “Man… wow!”
