What’s a better holiday present to yourself than a pre-Thanksgiving show from one of New York’s most beloved bands, Interpol? This year has been big for a band credited with redefining NYC’s rock sound in the early millennium. They returned to the festival scene, playing the likes of Gov Ball and Lollapalooza, and brought back their big hits like “New York,” “Slow Hands,” and “Evil” in time to support their new yet true-to-form El Pintor. Some time off did the band plenty of good, seeing as the response to their post-Carlos Dengler career has been nothing short of overwhelmingly positive. In concert, Interpol are sure to bring plenty of nostalgia for the New York of their prime, until we’re reminded that that time wasn’t too long ago.
