Interpol 06/12/10 @ Brixton Academy

Last month I totally slacked on commenting on all the gigs I went to. Which was a shame because now I’m trying to remember them all and I’m not good at remembering what I wanted to say over 4 weeks ago.

Anyway. Interpol at Brixton.

I got tickets for this and Frank Turner the weekend after AAAAGES before the gigs, so it was a nice surprise when I realised “oh hey, I’m going to a gig this weekend”.

Anna Calvi¬†was great. I would love to see her in a smaller venue to really get a good feel for her music, but since I was riiiight at the front it was quite ok. I’m definitely going to check out her album when I remember.

Surfer Blood were ok. Can’t really remember what I thought of their music specifically…but just have a general sense of knowing that they weren’t bad. Did spot the singer just loitering outside after the gig for some reason.

Interpol were ACE. I only really know their first album and their latest. The first album became my “listen to this to drown post-gig tinnitus” album while I was at university and I love it. The new album I really like, but I think I need to listen to it more. Everything else in-between is a BIG VOID to me.
It was still great though. Never seen them with Carlos, so I can’t really comment on his absence. They played all the songs I love from the new album and a nice selection of older stuff. Love ’em.
