The National Bring Somber Edge to 'The Mindy Project'

Band headlines music festival on comedy show

By |

The National made an appearance on last night's episode of The Mindy Project as the headliners of a made-up music festival that also featured a performance by Casey Pearson (Anders Holm), the pastor-turned-DJ fiancé of Mindy Kaling's character.

Where Does The National's 'Trouble Will Find Me' Land on Our Best Albums Mid-Year Report?

The band gave an intimate acoustic performance of "This Is the Last Time," from their recent Trouble Will Find Me, and another song from the album, "I Need My Girl" closed out the episode, making for an unsually somber ending to the comedy.
