Armed with a surplus of achingly melancholy songs, two pairs of brothers and the haunting baritone of singer Matt Berninger, Brooklyn-via-Ohio rockers the National are somehow one of the biggest rock bands in the world. As if to demonstrate how far it's come, the group brings the larger-than-life arrangements of its recent Sleep Well Beast LP to one of the city’s most opulent venues for a two-night stand.
