Rock This

So I got the new The National album and I like it. Jeff Central Village reviewed this record over a month ago, and he was spot-on, so I won't wax further on it. Except to say, I read somewhere, I'm not sure where, but someone called the album "a rock album." Um, no. Unless your definition of "rock" is The Cure ca. Wish.... then it might be a "rock" album.

Anyway, they're playing June 16 and 17 at Mercury Lounge.



And I don't think I'm supposed to tell anyone, but the Wallflowers are playing tomorrow at the W. Bye!
