A quiet moment from @thenational’s stunning show at @beacontheatre earlier this week. New album is sounding reallllllllllly good (and.. that version of Rylan tho!). Full write up + gallery now live over on @weallwantsomeone! #abauerphoto#thenational#beacontheatre#iameasytofind
Spent the evening last night with The National at the Beacon Theatre where they premiered their new album, ‘I Am Easy To Find’ in full. For those who are wondering, I can confirm that this new album is absolutely incredible. More photos soon... (📷 for @weallwantsomeone). #abauerphoto#thenational#beacontheatre#iameasytofind
For the past 9 years (yes, 9) I’ve called this place my home away from home. It’s been where I’ve come to work everyday, and the place where I’ve made so many wonderful acquaintances over the years. The space itself was a massive 100,000 square feet (with 80,000 devoted to the warehouse and 20,000 to the front office) and while there was always change happening somewhere internally, the one constant through it all was the building. People have come and gone but the biggest change was back in late 2017 when the company got bought out. We all immediately knew our time in this space was limited, but we didn’t want to believe our time would come to an end as it was such a great space to work in. At times, I think we all took it for granted and didn’t appreciate just how great it was. I’m still with the company and onto more exciting things with them, but today was my last day in the space and it just feels surreal that I’ll never step foot into this building ever again. Farewell old friend. 👋
And just like that, another Housewares Show is in the books. For as long as it takes to set everything up (about 3 or more days), it’s almost surreal how quickly everything comes down (less than one hour, a new company record). Till next time, McCormick Place. Till next time.
