The National performed at the Twilight Concert Series on Thursday at Pioneer Park. Sharon Van Etten opened the show.
The New York City band includes frontman Matt Berninger and two sets of brothers: Bryan and Scott Devendorf and Aaron and Bryce Dessner. Brotherly love is part of what sets the band apart, Scott Devendorf said. "For us, it’s kept the band together. … It does give us support." 2010’s "High Violet" album, the band’s biggest commercial success, was actually its fifth album. That means "Trouble Will Find Me" will be thought of as that crucial "sophomore" album. The band also was featured in "Mistaken for Strangers," which premiered at New York City’s Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year.
