Apparently, the National are big fans of the FOX comedy The Mindy Project, starring Mindy Kaling. The band will make an appearance on an upcoming episode as a headliner at the made-up “Pennyfarthing” music festival.
According to frontman Matt Berninger, the band have been longtime fans of the show, “I’m a big fan of the show and in interviews, they would ask me what I’d been reading lately,” Berninger said “I kept saying The Mindy Project because I watch more TV than I read. I turned Scott onto it and we became really big fans of the show, so they invited us on.”
