WATCH + DOWNLOAD - Justin Vernon + The National "Vanderlyle Crybaby Geeks"

The National played two new songs on Montreal's CBC radio but the most exciting moment of their time at Q Live was their performance of "Venderlyle Crybaby Geeks" with Bon Iver's Justin Vernon taking a break from pumping iron and lending a hand with amazing backup vocals. The video speaks for itself, amazing stuff.
