Interpol at the Rock Hall
NYC indie staples Interpol headline as part of Rock Hall Live!
Join us at the Rock Hall on Friday, August 9 for a feature live show on the Rock Hall Live stage with openers Surfbort and headliners Interpol.
Doors will open at 7pm and the show kicks off at 8pm. Tickets are $26.00 and include museum admission. Must purchase event ticket for access to concert. This event is rain or shine.
Since their emergence in the early 2000s, Interpol have occupied a unique space within indie rock. Not only did they lead New York City's turn-of-the-century rock revival, they also helped kick-start the post-punk revival that has endured well into the present day.
Surfbort, a four-piece punk band from Brooklyn, New York made up of David Head, Alex Kilgore, Sean Powell and led by Dani Miller, channels inspiration from the 80’s punk scene to produce rousing, explosive music. Surfbort’s live experience is visceral and confrontational. Their feedback-strafed, guitar-shredding punk music says no to a digital age full of intolerance; they radiate love and friendship. All are welcome in the SURFBORT FREAK FAMILY!
