Comments 87 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Interpol is coming to Vancouver to play the Orpheum January 27th, 2011 and tickets go on sale this Friday, November 19th at 10:00am through Live Nation. Interpol’s fourth album was released in September and thanks to stations like The Peak in Vancouver, more and more people are discovering the brilliance of this independent act from New York City. Should you be unfamiliar with their work, here is a sampler to get started:

I have a pair of “beat the box office” tickets to give away right now that you can enter to win using one of both of the following methods:

  • Leave a comment on this post naming your favourite Interpol song (1 entry)
  • Post the following on Twitter (1 entry)
  • RT to enter to win Interpol tickets from @LiveNation & @Miss604

    I will draw one winner at random from all entries this Friday, November 19th at 12:00pm.

    Update Mitch is the winner, congratulations!

      Neon Lights, for sure. I’ve been an Interpol fan for so long, went to their concert in Calgary a couple years back. Would give anything to see them again.
