Members of The National to play free show Thursday


  • Lanzendorf Experiment today at Shove Chapel

Music fanatics love to brag about their “I was there” moments:

“The Promise Ring gave me a group hug after a really emotional house show in Detroit.”

Or, “James Murphy was crashing on my living room floor when he wrote ‘Losing My Edge.’”

Or maybe “I saw three members of The National play for free at Packard Hall.”

You can make at least one of those things come true this Thursday evening, when the band Lanzendorf Experiment — featuring National members Scott Devendorf, Bryan Devendorf, and Ben Lanz — play the Colorado College venue at 7:30 p.m.

Meanwhile, Fuel/Friends blogger and Chapel Sessions curator Heather Browne — who’s had more legitimate “I was there” moments than the rest of us combined — spent some time with the group this afternoon at Shove Chapel.

"Today's session was an open rehearsal for the band," she says, "but the tapes were rolling and the video camera capturing, so we might see a sneak peek as a non-traditional Chapel Session on Fuel/Friends."

Browne says the Lanzendorf Experiment may also release the full session recording at some time in the future.

You can go here to find more details on the show, which will also be live-streamed here. (Although watching a show on your computer isn't be all that much to brag about.)

And finally, you can go here for a 15-second teaser from the Shove performance. It sounds a whole lot to me like they’re covering Joy Division’s “Transmission,” but I wasn't there.
