Interpol Rocks House of Blues

Last night’s Interpol show at House of Blues was stellar.

A month shy of three years since Interpol played to an Orlando crowd, I was really surprised that the show wasn’t a sell out. Nonetheless, the house was packed.

Since their last trip to town, the band’s lineup has had some pretty significant changes … Carlos D, the band’s bassist is now their former bassist and they’ve added a new keyboardist. Even with the changes, the band’s sound is as good as it’s ever been–maybe better.

The setlist included a healthy mix of old and new including the crowd favorite “Rest My Chemistry.”  Overall, it was a great 75-minute set.

On a side note, I was not a fan of the show opener, Twin Tigers. I think their performance would’ve been bearable had every song been an instrumental, but alas, that wasn’t the case. Maybe next time, guys.

    It was a bummer hearing about Carlos D leaving but really there’s some great potential if the band chooses to keep Pajo and Curtis as full-time members. I’m not familiar with the work of Pajo or Slint but judging by the Secret Machines’ earlier work, Curtis could bring an interesting dynamic to a once hypnotic but currently stagnant-sounding band.
