The National plans Florida stop in St. Augustine this summer


Remember when we talked about how The National seems to only want to play St. Augustine when the band comes to Florida?

Well, it happened again. Today, The Amp (fka St. Augustine Amphitheatre) announced that Matt Berninger & co. would be playing the venue on June 17. Courtney Barnett is the opener for the band’s only Florida show, and tickets (which start at $45) go on sale Friday, March 8, at 10 a.m.

The announcement comes along with the news that the National is releasing a new album I Am Easy to Find on May 17. Get more information on the show via, and experience a new single, "You Had Your Soul With You," below.
