A few years ago we went to see Interpol play the second of two nights at Hammerstein Ballroom. We remember really enjoying the first opener of the night, but never caught their name. Not too long ago a friend mentioned he was going out to see "that band that opened for Interpol" play a show. We put the pieces together and reacquainted ourselves with a band we should have been listening to all this time. They're playing Pianos tonight, then Warsaw opening for Minus the Bear May 5th. Looking forward to seeing them again.

You can listen to some track on their Myspace page.
