Per Brooklyn Vegan, it looks as though the National will be playing a surprise gig at Mercury Lounge tonight. The band will be back in town in early June to perform at the Barclays Center (and there are still tickets for that show available), but this is a rare opportunity to see them in a small club. Tickets are on sale at noon, and yeah, these are going to sell out quick.
UPDATE: The band will also play Sycamore in Ditmas Park at 12:30, and Public Assembly at 5pm. Gothamist has the scoop.
Check out a video for "Sea of Love," from their new album, Trouble Will Find Me (out today!), below.
