The National’s Matt Berninger Shakes Up Staid Image With Aiport Bomb Scare


A while back Vulture offered the National some unsolicited advice on how to convince people — including many of the critics that give them excellent reviews — that they are not boring. Not on our list of suggestions? Airport evacuation bomb scare! Front man Matt Berninger tells Spinner today a wonderful story about how a bomb-resembling clock he bought in Tokyo accidentally cleared out the Honolulu airport recently. Of course, this being the National, muffins, coffee, and a massage chair are also involved. Still: Well done, Matt! [Spinner]
