The road documentary about successful Indie Rock band The National (Cincy-bred, Brooklyn-based) is premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival on Wednesday, where the band will also perform. The film, Mistaken For Strangers, was made by Cincinnatian Tom Berninger (younger brother of National singer Matt). From looks of the just-released trailer for the movie, it appears to be a hoot (with a bit of awkward tension for good measure).
The National — whose guitarist, Bryce Dessner, just wrapped up another successful MusicNOW festival here in Cincy — will perform
a homecoming show on July 14, headlining the final night of the
three-day Bunbury Music Festival at Sawyer Point Park. For tickets and

The National's first new album since 2010's High Violet, Trouble WIll Find Me, is due in the U.S. on May 21 from the 4AD label.
