The National + Hayden x Canadian Dates near London = Hotness

It was really cool hearing about Hayden joining the National on stage to perform 'Dynamite Walls' when the National came to TO a couple of weeks ago. Apparently, the National front man Matt Berninger, cites Hayden as a big influence of his, so naturally Hayden is going to open for the National on their upcoming fall tour through Europe. But this isn't the exciting part of the story.

Prepping for the tour, I'd imagine, Hayden is playing three Canadian dates:

1 NOV ~ WAKEFIELD, Quebec - Black Sheep ~ Tickets
2 NOV ~ KINGSTON, Ontario - Grad Club, Queen’s University ~ Tickets
3 NOV ~ GUELPH, Ontario - UC 103, University of Guelph ~ Tickets

That's the exciting part of the story, particularly as these are supposed to be "intimate acoustic shows" (sounds sexy). I'd expect a few new songs from him at these shows as Hardwood Records is saying his new album should be finished and will be released in early 2008.

Hayden's Myspace.

Recommended tracks: "Dynamite Walls", "Bad As They Seem", "The Hazards of Sitting Beneath Pine Trees" "Trees Lounge"
