Voice of Authority: Interpol Arrests House of Blues Rather than relying on an old standard track as an opener as so many bands do, last night at Orlando’s House of Blues Interpol started with a track from their forthcoming album aptly titled Interpol. This is easily one of the rawest, most authentic bands I’ve seen in longer than I can remember.

This band deftly ripped through nearly an hour and half of both old favorite tracks like “Rest My Chemistry”, “Evil”, “Obstacle 1”, “Narc”, “ PDA”,  “Wrecking Ball” and “The Heinrich Maneuver” while throwing in a balanced mix of forthcoming tracks, most notably “Barricade” and “Lights”.

In addition to an air-tight show, their encore consisted of four tracks including NYC” and “Stella Was a Diver and She Was Always Down” and ended with “Slow Hands”, which was anything but slow.  This show was brass knuckles without the anger:  strong, fervent, and a complete blow to the senses.

Fronted by the almost otherworldly deep-throated crooning of skinny, blonde Paul Banks and energized by the English import Daniel Kessler and drummer Sam Fogarino, Interpol didn't let up. Supported by newcomers Dave Pajo and Brandon Curtis, they were straightforward, professional, and didn’t spend time jerking around with lame introductions of band members or blowing smoke up the audience’s ass about how they’re the best audience ever.  They came, they played, they kicked ass.  An occasional polite “thank you” and a “take care.  Thank you.  We’ve been Interpol.  Good night.” was a solid end to an incredibly solid show.  Other bands take note:  shut up and play.

As for the opening band Twin Tigers, someone please issue a DNR.

NEW YORK (Billboard) - Pearl Jam fans, save the date: guitarist Stone Gossard says the closest thing to a 20th birthday gig for the band will be a slot on the bill of Neil Young's annual Bridge School Benefit in northern California on October 23 and 24.

"The only thing we've got going on in October is Bridge School, which is really special," Gossard told Billboard while in New York to support the new album by his side-band, Brad. "So that's our 20th anniversary, which is fitting. It's perfect: not too blown up. It's not about us, it about all those kids that are on stage with you and about Neil Young and his commitment, his influence."

It will be Pearl Jam's eighth Bridge appearance. The group first played the benefit, which supports Young's school for children with severe physical disabilities, back in 1992.

The Bridge School dates, which will likely be held at the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, begin the day after Pearl Jam's exact anniversary. The band, then called Mookie Blaylock, played its first show in Seattle's tiny Off Ramp club on October 22.
