In 2017, The National celebrated the release of their Grammy-award winning album Sleep Well Beast with a 2017 show at Basilica Hudson, a 19th century factory turned arts space in Upstate New York that was equal parts intimate and unique.
The band played in the center of the venue - surrounded by a small group of lucky fans. Around the venue were accompanying musicians - who played in as the band performed Sleep Well Beast in its entirety.
The show was recorded and was produced into an 80 minute concert film by La Blogothèque in association with 100 Year Films titled Guilty Party: Basilica Hudson (stream it below)
Guilty Party: Basilica Hudson was released this week as part of the band's fundraising campaign for their touring crew - who are currently out of work due to the covid-19 pandemic. You can donate to the cause HERE
