Few modern bands have managed to channel grace, quiet desperation and ennui as perfectly as Brooklyn-by-way-of-Cincinnati rockers The National, which recently kicked off a six-night run at the Beacon, last night featuring assistance from local singer-songwriter Sharon Von Etten. Detractors like to malign The National with the tag "dad-rock," but that doesn't seem quite right. They're more like an issue of GQ, asking—sometimes explicitly—how a man is supposed to live in these troubling times. Our photographer wagz2it was there to capture the action. Yes, frontman Matt Berenger wore a natty suit. Check out our listing for the skinny on the rest of the run.
