New York musicians take center stage in WNYC's Greene Space today. Brooklyn-based rock band The National gives our audience a sneak preview of the upcoming album High Violet. Plus: Jackson Heights-born DJ Rob Swift puts his turntable wizardry on display. We watch his foray into hip hop and classical music during a live performance.

The National earned Best of the Year raves and new fans with Boxer, a 2007 album fueled by dizzying sonic arrangements and singer Matt Berninger's moody baritone.
