The National to Make ‘Saturday Night Live’ Debut with Host Lena Dunham
By Annie Reuter
The National will make their Saturday Night Live debut next month.
Today (Feb. 25) it was confirmed that on March 8, the Brooklyn-based band will take the SNL stage with fellow Brooklyn actress Lena Dunham, who will also make her SNL debut as host.
While SNL will be embracing Brooklyn in March, this coming weekend’s schedule will no doubt make headlines with Beck‘s performance and host Jim Parsons.
After The National take the SNL stage, the band will continue their 2014 tour with stops in Los Angeles, Chicago and Austin. Complete dates below.
