Following Damon Albarn and Graham Coxon’s stripped down performance on Sunday evening, Blur were tonight reunited for their first public performance as a full band since 2010. The performance took place at the 2012 BRIT Awards (sort of like the Grammys, but way more casual) where Blur were given the Outstanding Contribution to Music award. Following that they closed out the show with a 5-song performance which included “Boys & Girls,” “Song 2,” “Park Life,” “Tender,” and “This Is A Low.”
UPDATE: All 5 songs can now be watched below.

Plugging away since 1999, The National finally hit mainstream success with the release of their 2010 album High Violet. Of course, this entailed their first world tour, but in the new documentary Mistaken For Strangers, it’s only the backdrop for the relationship between lead singer Matt Berninger and his younger brother Tom, who had no idea that these short videos he was shooting would turn into a public document of their troubled, if still loving brotherhood.
