Thread: Lovers of Interpol Convene

    Default Lovers of Interpol Convene

    So, many folks have given up on the above mentioned band. Many feel they have lost their touch, but I say...nay. Not only do I love their more recent music, but I feel that in ways they have gotten better over time.

    Now, for those of you who disagree, never fear. It seems they have been trying to curry favor with their former fans by making their live set list Turn on the Bright Lights heavy. So if you'd prefer to hear some of those gems, tune in to their set Friday April 15th.

    Anywho, they still kick ass. If you're still game for these boys, join me in celebration that they're returning to the desert.

    Mammoth, we will have to meet at Interpol in santa barbara. I'm also so so tempted to go to that Little Dragon show at UCR, but I feel like I would just be wondering the whole time what I'm missing at Interpol.

    You would. A friend of mine talked this same logic into me a few years ago when Pearl Jam and Fever Ray were on the same night. He was like "dude, go to Pearl Jam. If you go to Fever Ray you're not even gonna be into the show, you're just going to be wondering what PJ's setlist was the whole time."

    And he was totally right. I went to PJ and it was this out of leftfield setlist of songs that I NEVER thought I'd see them play live.

    The first Interpol album will always be my favorite. I did not like the third album. The most recent album is okay, but i need to listen to it again.

    Trust me. Interpol were brilliant at all the shows I saw this year, but Little Dragon absolutely blew me away at the Echoplex. I think the boys will forgive you for this one. Check out the UCR show, gonna be so tasty.

    I love how this band's greatest crime has been releasing two merely good to mediocre albums after starting their career with an instant classic and an excellent follow up. If only the crimes of other bands were as egregious.

    If I made you a PJ mix of their non-radio cock rock songs that I think you'd like, would you listen to it?

    So I guess its settled then. Not to mention they started playing "the new" all of a sudden, and with my luck they would totally play it at the show I skip out on, and then not at UCSB or coach.

    After Little Dragons echoplex show its just hard to not want more of them immediately, the album does the band no justice imo. BUT with the new album out soon they should be back pretty quickly anyways, so fuck it.

    I made the same choice, and was happy. I was even happier when Fever Ray played Coachella so I did not always wonder what I missed on the reverse end.

    since I already know thats gonna be the case I think I am going to just give up all considerations of making the Little Dragon show. Just out of curiosity though how is the barn as a venue? Someone tell me its shitty so I feel better about my decision.
