Anonymous asked: Does anyone know where Bryan Devendorf went to college? I know Matt and Scott went to Cinci, Bryce - Yale, and Aaron - Columbia. Somebody said he went to OSU, which is my college. It'd be cool to know if my all-time fav drummer went to my college :D
I think that’s right, I know he went to college in Ohio so I’m just assuming that’s correct. Don’t quote me on that though :)
garage-flower asked: This may have been asked & answered before, in which case I do apologise, but does anyone know what a pink rabbit consists of? Matt said it when I saw them, but I can't remember now...
According to this article: http://blogs.kcrw.com/musicnews/2013/08/the-nationals-stripped-down-set-for-kcrw-pink-rabbits/
“(Note: MBE Associate Producer Collin Walzak later found out that “Pink Rabbits” is the name for a drink Matt made up. The recipe, dare you try it, is Tequila, Nestle Quick Strawberry Milk and Kahlua.)”

Anonymous asked: do you know where matt's tattoo is? and who martha jane is?
He states during the interview that it is on his chest, you can see it in some of the photos they used to have on the home page of americanmary before they updated it. And I don’t know who Martha Jane is, he seemed pretty unwilling to specify that.
Sit back and enjoy as the lead singer of The National, Matt Berninger melts your earholes with his baritone voice on today’s WHO CHARTED!
(PS you all owe me for asking what his tattoo says)
"I realised around when Boxer came out that I wanted to [be in a band] for a long time, and I didn’t want to look like one of these guys in their forties trying to look like they are still in their twenties. So I got a suit fitted and thought "I can wear this until I’m a 100 years old." It’s important to show I respect that more people are coming to our shows now. This is important, and I should dress up for it."
revier asked: do you know where/when i can buy the national documentary in australia?
I’m pretty sure one of these record stores will have The Virginia EP, which features the documentary, “A Skin, A Night” by Vincent Moon: http://www.recordstoreday.com/Venues?country=Australia
Otherwise, you could order it from their online store here: http://thenational.cinderblock.com/a-skin-a-night-dvd.html
letitbre asked: any idea where I can find their appearance on The Artists Den? It ran on the local PBS station here once at 3am on a Monday. Haven't been able to find it anywhere.
All I could find is their performance of “This Is the Last Time” from The Artists Den. Anyone know where we can find the whole performance?
Anyone know what song is playing at the end? (3:15)
I don’t think it was ever released, but I believe it was something from circa 2006 between Cherry Tree and Boxer. It can also be heard on Vincent Moon’s documentary “A Skin, A Night” where a lot of early versions of songs from Boxer are used.
