Anyone go?

I went, it wasn't very busy, the crowd was very quiet (nice for a change) and they played a good set. The sound last night was incredible. So crisp and clear, I would call it perfect. Very happy I went. Great cd101 crowd people watching. Lots of very "dressed up" jeans and t-shirts, I never felt so dressed up and hipster-ish in my life, just because i too had jean and a t-shirt on.

it did sound good. and they played very well. it was a good show, i agree. however... just one complaint:
when your first album gets you on the map.. makes you famous rock stars and everyone loves those songs. PLAY THEM.

I went too. I had a good time (despite having broken my toe earlier in the day).

The opening act, Calla, wasn't bad. I thought they did a pretty good job until the very end of their set when they entered what I call "jam" mode.

Interpol was great, but then, I like Interpol, so it is hard for me to have an unbiased opinion.

It was my first time attending an outdoor show at the LC, and everything sounded good. (I am not a fan of the inside of the LC.) It did start to rain a little, but it soon stopped. I was curious about what the crowd would have done if there had been a downpour, and does an LC crowd's reaction to rain vary depending on the artist/act that is playing?

By the way, have you seen the video for "The Heinrich Maneuver"? The video is in extremely slow motion with a mix of reverse and forward motion. I think the concept is interesting, but I thought the execution was a bit confusing.

yea.. i had a good time too. it's just that i haven't heard any of the new album and that was over half the set. and only like 1 or 2 from the first album! i loved that album! that's why i went!
i agree about calla.. whatever they're called. they started really solid but then my mind wandered after awhile. i got kinda bored with them. maybe if i new their songs it woulda been better.

i don't recall interpol playing a ton of turn on the bright lights during the antics tour so i'm not surprised to hear that it was mostly the new stluff.

I hope Sara Smith didn't go or she would have felt out of place.

i thought calla started slow and samey, then got better when they stepped it up a bit towards the end of the set. i'd say they were a pleasant opener, but nothing to get excited about.

i agree that interpol played great and the sound was excellent. i thought they had done more than a couple of songs from "turn on the bright lights," but maybe i'm confusing them with songs from "antics." i've listened to the new album a few times and with the exception of "the heinrich maneuver" (the single) so far i find the new songs forgettable. i was much more excited to hear "slow hands" and "evil."

we were standing near the front and the crowd was mostly cool, with the exception of the messed-up girl nearby who wouldn't stop flailing around in the tight crowd and had to be dragged out by her three guy friends. oh, and the fight that the bouncers had to break up. i enjoyed snickering at the group of hipster guys in front of me shouting along to all the lyrics and smoking clove cigarettes. you just don't see that at bourbon street. :wink:

i guess the big knock against interpol is their live shows. a lot of reviews i'd read said they were really dull live. no life in their set.
either they took notice or the critics didn't know what the f they were talking about. it was the first time i saw interpol and i thought they were really good.
i was wondering... where were all the goth kids for this show??? shouldn't the goths love this baritone voice with the cure-ish pop sensability?
WHERE WERE THE GOTHS?
are they all just into techno and the NIN ilk now???

they have no time for 4th generation joy division rip-offs.
they were all at the she wants revenge show enjoying 5th generation bauhaus rip-offs.

interpol's drummer is amazing live. really. fucking. amazing.
that's about all i remember from when i saw them on the 1st tour.

You all are going to turn them into the next Violent Femmes if everyone just wants to hear the first album only.

Can't wait for the "I love the 00's tour" at the State Fair with Interpol, the Killers, Wolfmother, and someone else who is really overhyped and not very good right now. :D :D :D

See you all in 2016

This is going to be so much better than the Seven Mary 3/Gin Blossoms/Sponge/Tonic tour.

Anyway I am not a big Interpol fan but I think Calla are ok.

Ooh, will Interpol's singer get all swollen up like Gordon Gano? That would be cool.

nah, even better, it'll be the brooding bass-player/cripsin glover look-alike. he's the most "serious" one, hence the best one to laugh at later . . .

never seen Calla on stage, but if you like sparse+druggy experimental rock check out their Scavengers lp (2001, Young God Records).
