Another Interpol Show?

Well, if you read this blog, it definitely looks like the only shows I go to are Interpol and Wilco shows, and that actually is about right for the last few months. Finally, however, the summer is coming and there should be many more concert reviews hitting this blog soon. For now, I saw Interpol last night at the 9:30 Club with Blonde Redhead, and again, they were amazing. Here's the setlist.

Next Exit
Slow Hands
Stella Was a Diver and She Was Always Down
Public Pervert
A Time to Be So Small
Not Even Jail
Hands Away
Take You on a Cruise (into)

The Specialist
Obstacle 1

I was actually quite surprised about how much the setlist varied from when I saw them back in November, considering it was the same tour, but it was a very different show. I'd have to say the highlight was "Take You on a Cruise," which I've never seen them play live and still gives me chills every time I hear it. Right after the little breakdown, when Paul sang "I am a scavenger. . . " I almost completely lost it. And the song never ended, it just went directly into "PDA," where Interpol proved themselves to be the coolest band on earth. When Daniel does his solo, the rest of the band stops playing, then all come back with lit cigarettes to finish the song. All you could see were the shadows of Paul, Sam and Carlos with orange flames next to their faces, it looked sooooo awesome. Anyway, hearing them play "The Specialist" was quite a treat as I'm under the impression they do not play it very often, and I was worried about them ending with "Roland," but it worked very well as a song to close the night with.
