Before The National took the stage in front of a sold-out crowd at Forest Hills Stadium, I had a chance to talk with frontman Matt Berninger. I've been a fan of this band for many years, but this was the first time I'd met Matt.

Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers brought their 40th Anniversary tour to Forest Hills Stadium for two shows this week, and with the WFUV Clubhouse open and rockin' on both nights (thanks to everyone who came by to hang out!), a few staffers had a chance to see the FUV Essentials artist in action.

After Wilco played two albums beginning to end on Friday night, what was left for Saturday night? A ton! As Jeff Tweedy said from the stage, "Tonight we're going to play songs from ALL our albums... except Being There and Yankee Hotel Foxtrot!"
