But the grizzly bear lives on in our imaginations and in stories and advertisements symbolizing things desired and things lost. Bear in mind, what you do affects wildlife.

    The National plus very special guest Portugal. The Man.
  Santa Barbara Bowl, 1122 N. Milpas Street, Santa Barbara CA
> DETAILS   
> HIDE   
  The National + Portugal. The Man. 
The National - Formed in 1999, the Ohio raised, Brooklyn-based band consists of vocalist Matt Berninger fronting two pairs of brothers: Aaron (guitar, bass, piano) and Bryce Dessner (guitar), and Scott (bass, guitar) and Bryan Devendorf (drums). The band’s newest album, TROUBLE WILL FIND ME, the most self-assured collection of songs produced by the National in its 14-year career, is a tribute to fully evolved artistic vision — and, somewhat less mystically, to sleep deprivation. Their first full-lengths, The National and Sad Songs For Dirty Lovers, and a crucial mini-album, Cherry Tree, preceded their signing to Beggars Banquet in 2004. Alligator (2005), included underground anthem “Mr. November,” and raised their profile as the National grew into an incendiary live band.    ($49.00
