The National: "Anyone's Ghost" on 'The Late Late Show,' 5/28

As promised, here's The National on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson this past Friday. Yes, the bassist is wearing a wig.

Found via Shallow Nation.

More after the jump.

Some thoughts:

  • Remember when seeing The National with horns was special? This isn't a complaint, mind you, but it's just an indicator of how this band's means have grown.

  • Yes, that's a wig.

  • I'm surprised we haven't heard "Bloodbuzz Ohio" during any of their television appearances. Thus far, we've heard "Terrible Love" on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, "Afraid of Everyone" on The Late Show with David Letterman, and now "Anyone's Ghost" on Ferguson's show. "Bloodbuzz" is, presently, the only song available as a single.

  • The National are on tour now, but the only date they have scheduled near OKC is Austin City Limits Fest in October. Here's hoping we get a date around that time.

  • For those of you interested: Guestroom Records in OKC still has copies of both the "Bloodbuzz Ohio" 45 (at $5, it's a steal) and High Violet on vinyl. If you're looking for a Violet Ticket, this is your chance. (I don't have a confirmation on Size, so if anyone has that info, please post it in the comments.)

      I like Craig Ferguson as a comedian, but he seems so uninterested in every band that plays on his show. Still an awesome performance!
