As if Cincinnati needed more proof that our homegrown artists are doing well, Cincinnati's The National just announced that they will be headlining a show at Brooklyn's Barclays Center on June 5. Jay-Z just opened this brand new Arena a few months ago and the building has been hard at work firing a proverbial shot across Madison Square Garden's bow. Barclay's Center can hold up to 19,000 people (MSG holds up to 19,205). Rumor on the street is that we can expect a new record from the band early this year. We certainly wish the band nothing but the best. Come on home boys, we need a good show!
