Interpol, Tycho, AND Matthew Dear Are Coming To The Palace Theater 5/5


Interpol is fresh off the announcement of their new album “The Other Side of Make-Believe.” As a long-time fan, I can’t think of a better way to get my first big taste of the upcoming album than live on the Palace Theater stage on May 5th. The intensity of the first songs “Something Changed” and “Toni” is different than what we’ve heard from Paul Banks and Co. on past releases. Perhaps this is due to beginning the album remotely in 2020 instead of writing live like they always have. There’s a vulnerability cutting through the usual soaring guitars and biting energy. I can’t wait to see how this fits in with fan favorites.

Scott Hansen’s Grammy-nominated electronic project Tycho will be opening the show. I think any Tycho fan would agree that they’d expect to see them headlining their own show at Palace Theater – they have for their 2017 and 2019 tours with much acclaim. It feels like a steal to get to see Interpol and Tycho on the same night. 

The surprises just kept coming as I looked down the list of guests. How could there possibly be more talent on this bill?! Matthew Dear is an artist I’ve discovered over the past few years. His song “Modafinil Blues” was featured as the theme song for the true-crime Podcast “The Clearing.” I couldn’t be happier that he’ll be opening the show. 

It will be a triple bill of firsts for me. I don’t have a lot of opportunities for those after years of concerts under my belt. I’m sincerely looking forward to every second of this show!
