Artist Cellphone Snap of the Day: The National & The Soccer Game

Posted October 13

Being in a band isn’t all about cramped buses and sweating on stage, sometimes musicians get to kick and watch someone else thrash about for the amusement of the crowd. The above snap comes from O Music Award nominee for Best Artist With a Cameraphone The National, who is currently winding down before hitting the road once more in November.

“[We were] spending some downtime between tours,” says Aaron Dessner of the cellphone pic. “U.S. vs Ecuador on a lovely night at Red Bull Stadium.”

For the sake of enhanced relaxation, we hope the band was rooting for Ecuador.
