Pics of Interpol at the Ogden

Following up on my interview with Interpol drummer Sam Fogarino last week, I attended last night's concert at Denver's Ogden Theatre.

You are weightless ...

Check out a brief photo slideshow here.

I was firstly impressed by the performance of openers the White Rabbits, whose ridiculously catchy encore song "Percussion Gun" should be downloaded for free here by anyone with ears.

Interpol put on a hell of a show, once again demonstrating super-tight timing and musicianship overall. They didn't sound any different minus founding member and bassist Carlos Dengler, replaced last night by Slint's David Pajo. New material from the latest, self-titled album went over well with the crowd, but they showed the most energy for classic tracks like "Not Even Jail" from 2004's Antics album.

In a truly bizarre moment of coincidence after Interpol's generous encore, drummer Sam Fogarino tossed him drumsticks out to the crowd and one landed at my feet, nearly halfway back across the auditorium. My buddy quickly snatched it up and later insisted that I take it. Pretty odd, that out of a crowd of roughly 1,500 people, he'd throw it right at the guy who interviewed him a week prior.
