Interpol Plays Tonight at Austin Music Hall
Interpol was formed in New York City in the late 90s, but it was in 2002 that they experienced tremendous success with the release of their album Turn On the Bright Lights, most definitely a fan favorite. You can listen to any track on that album, perhaps even just a few notes of a song, and you know – almost immediately – that it’s Interpol. It’s a rather distinctive style that defines them.
Guitarist Paul Banks put it best in an interview he did back in December, while discussing the band’s 2010 self-titled release. Interpol goes beyond a certain sound; it’s an aesthetic. The band’s appearance, the artwork, the dark tones, the emotions conveyed, the entire palette, are all unmistakably Interpol.
Interpol fans rejoice. The band has returned for another show tonight at the Austin Music Hall, 208 Nueces. Opening the show is Brooklyn duo School of Seven Bells. Doors open at 7 p.m., and the music starts at 8 p.m. Recommended.
