Interpol played House of Vans’ final show w/ Gang Gang Dance (pics, setlist, video)

Interpol were the last band to play Brooklyn’s House of Vans ended its eight-year run of free shows on Friday night (8/24). The show also served as a release party for Interpol’s new album, Marauder, and they’d set up a replica of the album’s press conference cover art at which people could have their picture taken and printed out. They opened their set with three tracks off the new album — “Number 10″ and singles “The Rover” and “If You Really Love Nothing” — and “Complications” made its live debut at HoV. (Not playing the LP’s “Party’s Over” was perhaps missed opportunity, given the circumstances.) Otherwise it was a parade of hits, including “NYC,” “Evil,” “Slow Hands,” and “Obstacle 1″ which closed out the night and House of Vans’ run. The show was livestreamed and you can watch part of that, and check out the setlist, below.

Gang Gang Dance, who have a new album as well, were the undercard and played a terrific, percussion-heavy set with nearly every member banging on something at at least one point during the set. (Having the drummer-at-large Ryan Sawyer as part of the band these days adds a lot.) Honduras opened the night. Though it being the last night, it felt pretty much like business as usual at House of Vans — on the way out they were handing out posters of the show, as well as t-shirts and sweatshirts with “House of Vans: 2010-2018″ on them.

We’ll miss ya, House of Vans. Check out pictures from the whole night in the gallery above.
