MTV: Interpol Show Report


In less than two weeks, the New York band will open for U2 in giant venues, but on Monday night, Berkeley Street Studios in Santa Monica was the very definition of intimate. With soft lighting and heavy drapery, producer Bob Clearmountain's studio had a hipster living-room vibe that meshed nicely with Interpol's dark atmospherics as the invited guests sipped free booze.
