The National Kickoff "I Am Easy To Find Tour" with 21-Song Set!

The National kicked off their I Am Easy to Find Tour last night in Philadelphia in support of their recently released album of the same title. They were joined by opener Courtney Barnett, a full-fledged star in her own right. It was an exciting night of innovative alt-rock all around, with both acts drawing heavily from their latest releases, but also mixing in older material.
Backgrounded by a whimsical, animated screen depicting a city scene, Barnett took to the stage for a 10 song set. She started things off with “Avant Gardener” from her 2014 EP A Sea of Split Peas, one of her most beloved songs to this day. “Avant Gardener” was followed by quite a few songs from her 2018 album Tell Me How You Really Feel, including “City Looks Pretty” and “Nameless, Faceless.” However, she also played older cuts such as “Small Poppies,” as well as her most recent single “Everybody Here Hates You.” Barnett ended her part of the show with “Pedestrian at Best.”

The National then wowed fans with a 21 song set, including a 5 song encore! They kicked off the set with “You Had Your Soul With You,” which also opens their album I Am Easy To Find, released just last month. Keeping in line with Barnett, about half of the band's set came from their latest album; however, they mixed in more familiar material from releases dating back to 2007. There were no covers here, just originals, reminding us how expansive The National’s discography is!

The National "ended" their set with “Where Is Her Head,” but came back on stage for a 5 song encore that finally completed with “Light Years.”
