In 2002, Interpol was invincible, presiding over the post-punk revival with their critically acclaimed Turn on the Bright Lights. They were every college kid’s favorite band, and their live show was a coveted ticket among record-store junkies and Pitchfork devotees. Their popularity only built over subsequent releases until the band went on break between 2011 and 2012, leaving fans with a last-kiss deluxe edition of Bright Lights as consolation. Then, this September, Interpol bounded back with El Pintor, which Pitchfork predictably panned, but NME dubbed a “revitalised return to form.” Whether you’re pining to hear the classics or eager to experience new songs live for the first time, Interpol’s live show is certain to electrify House of Blues this week. It’s an added perk to see Gainesville’s Hundred Waters as the opener, performing their intimate, evocative new album, The Moon Rang Like a Bell.
