And you were wondering just what D. A. Pennebaker‘s been up to, eh? I watched much of this live on Vevo’s YouTube channel specific to this show – great quality at 1080p and on-the-fly production. When I think Pennebaker, I think Don’t Look Back, most naturally, however, it turns out he has been somewhat active of late with his partner dating back to The War Room, Chris Hegedus and Pennebaker Hegedus Films.
It’s possible to embed each track (individually) from the 10-song set via Vevo.com, as well as YouTube. Anyway, here are a couple of my favorite The National cuts as performed live last night at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, benefiting Red Hot. Enjoy.
