post your Interpol memories; WIN TIX to ‘Turn On the Bright Lights’ NYC show
Share your own Interpol memory to Instagram — along with #Interpol15 @brooklynvegan — for a chance to win tickets to Interpol's 'Turn on the Bright Lights' full-album show at Forest Hills Stadium, plus a chance to meet the band and passes to the venue's secret entrance speakeasy. We're starting with these photos of the band at Webster Hall in 2005, as posted on BrooklynVegan.com at the time.
Interpol‘s debut album, Turn on the Bright Lights, turned 15 on Sunday (8/20). It doesn’t seem like a decade and a half ago, despite the skyline of Brooklyn looking very different than it did then. The album still sounds great and if you haven’t listened recently you can stream it below.
The band are playing Turn on the Bright Lights in full at shows in NYC (9/23 @ Forest Hills Stadium) and Los Angeles (September 30 @ Los Angeles State Historic Park), both with Deerhunter and Battles opening. Tickets for the Forest Hills show are still available but we’re giving away a pair that come with a band meet-and-greet as well as passes to the the venue’s secret entrance speakeasy.
To enter the contest, you’ll need to share a photo of your best Interpol memory (live shots, ticket stubs, memorabilia, etc) in the Official Facebook Event page or on Instagram. In either case, make sure to use the hashtag #Interpol15 and tag @BrooklynVegan to be eligible. We’ll give away one pair on Facebook and another on Instagram.
