    They might like to play with guns. Rumor has it the title is going to be Vintage Rifles, which sounds like a confusing mix of gun rights and hipster chic (check out my ironic 9mm glock, you guys). However, the only thing they'll be shooting down is your doubts, because The National are just another reason 2010 is a great year for music. They are touring too, so double great!

    We already met two parts of Vintage Rifles, "Runaway" and "Blood Buzz Ohio", so we kind of know what to expect (loosely). The tour begins at Knoxville's Big Ears Festival in March, and includes a stop at Radio City in New York. Tickets are pre-sale-ing tomorrow, and go out to the general public Friday. The password for all of the pre-sales is BloodBuzz.

    Also ears up, they are also playing a bunch of dates with Ramona Falls, one of our favorites from last year. Check out the dates below. -joe
