Just minutes into their Saturday night headlining Lollapalooza set, Interpol was -- once again -- being considered "the next Joy Division." The band opened with a trio of tunes from their acclaimed sophomore album, 'Antics,' including 'Slow Hands,' before busting into the debut of 'Rest My Chemistry.' Frontman Paul Banks kept banter to a minimum, thanking the audience for "being here," and from there, Interpol offered up 'There's No I in Threesome' and 'Heinrich Maneuver,' both from their latest album, 'Our Love to Admire.'
Sure, the band kept it to a T, playing a satisfying mix of songs from all three Interpol albums, but by their obvious 'Turn on the Bright Lights' encore, the crowd -- who gave up Muse to catch the set -- got it; This is the band at their best -- simple, badass indie rock.
