They say this band and its very devoted Zagreb audience have a very special relationship. I would have said bull, but I was dragged to one of their concerts in Zagreb a few years back and I admit it was one the best concerts I ever went to. Right there with Nick Cave giving me a hand and possibly even better than the awesome atmosphere Pearl Jam created when they payed in Zagreb.
Considering those were the ones I listened to through my teenage years and I only started on The National in my late twenties… It does not do them justice to say they are awesome. They are awesome. But live, in Zagreb, they are magic. At that concert, way back then, I was still sick. My back hurt like hell, and I still danced.
Tonight they play in Zagreb, practically in my own neighbourhood. I had to skip the concert. So am overdosing on their music. ;D
