I don’t know what it is about Q or Jian Ghomeshi that always inspires such great live performances. Maybe it’s a Canadian thing? This is a great performance of a great track, which, because of the its odd time signature, must always be tricky to pull off.
And if you haven’t already, definitely check out Mistaken For Strangers—you don’t need to be a fan of The National to enjoy it. Siblings, especially brothers, will find it really compelling.
