Curious what your impression of The National live is. Lots of energy or pretty chill like a lot of their music?

I think I can speak for both of us when I say that The National is one of our favorite live bands. They have been pretty laid back while opening for Arcade Fire, but when they are coming out for their own show, playing a full set, it is amazing.
