The National “Thomas Dean” Charlottesville Show Poster
The National are an indie rock band from Cincinnati, OH formed in 1999. They released two records on their own Brassland Records before releasing the breakout album Alligator on Beggars Banquet in 2005. Since then, they have continued their rise to be one of the most respected and acclaimed modern bands going — their records are regularly included in year end lists, their records are always in the Billboard charts upon release, and they even won a Grammy for their record Sleep Well Beast in 2017. It's hard to think of another modern band that has been able to have such a long and respected career, all without betraying their independent origins. This show poster drawn by Thomas Dean, for their April 30th, 2018 show at the Charlottesville's Sprint Pavilion with Big Thief, is a rare fan club edition and in excellent condition. Numbered #18 out of 20.
