Cinematic indie rockers the National today announced a small run of Southeastern shows later this year. And although Orlando is not one of the destinations, the sole Florida show is verrrry close at hand.

The very worthy St. Augustine Amphitheatre got the nod.

The National play the St. Augustine Amphitheatre with Big Thief on Saturday, May 5. Tickets go on sale on Friday, Jan. 19 and can be found here.
