Went to see Interpol last night at Ally Pally and they completely rocked the place...which was just as well as the venue was weird.
It's a massive place not really suited to the miserbalists choice of dour indie rock. But it didn't matter. Support act Blonde Redhead were very good - much better than they sound on record, lots of loops, feedback guitars and really sweet vocals by the female singer. It all went a bit My Bloody Valentine at one point but in a good way.
Then Interpol...wow....they didn't play my favourtite song "NYC" but it's a bit too downtempo for a gig so they only played a few of the slower numbers instead rocking out with "Evil", "Heinrich Manouver", "Slow Hands", "obstacle #1" etc and closing the encore with "PDA".
