Made up of a pack of talented, if somewhat overlooked, Canadian musicians and songwriters including A.C. “Carl” Newman, Dan Bejar and Neko Case, the Vancouver-based New Pornographers repeatedly have brought a creative outlook to the notion of a supergroup. Achieving their greatest critical and commercial success with their 2005 album, “Twin Cinema,” the members are still just as good at making some cheerfully hook-laden power pop. Their latest album, “Together,” features guest appearances by Zach Condon of Beirut, St. Vincent, Will Sheff of Okkervil River, and horn players from Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings. The New Pornographers are set to perform at the National on Monday, Oct 18, at 7 p.m. $20-$25. 612-1900. — Mike Hilleary
