Interpol at The Riviera
Wednesday, November 12th
Losing an integral original member can spell death for most bands, but for Interpol, it’s spelled rebirth. The ubiquitously suited-up, dour NYC rockers just released El Pintor, their first record since the departure of longtime bassist Carlos D and their best release since groundbreaking 2002 debut Turn on the Bright Lights. Combining the bleak aesthetic that made them the personification of cool with more accessible melodies they’ve picked up along the way, darkness never seemed so bright.
