w/ Water From Your Eyes


Spoon’s tenth album, Lucifer on the Sofa, is the band’s purest rock ’n roll record to date. Texas-made, it is the first set of songs that the quintet has put to tape in its hometown of Austin in more than a decade. Written and recorded over the last two years–both in and out of lockdown–these songs mark a shift toward something louder, wilder, and more full-color.

From the detuned guitars anchoring “The Hardest Cut,”to the urgency of“Wild,” to the band’s blown-out cover of the Smog classic“Held,”Lucifer on the Sofa bottles the physical thrill of a band tearing up a packed room. It’s an album of intensity and intimacy, where the music’s harshest edges feel as vivid as the directions quietly murmured into the mic on the first-take.According to frontman Britt Daniel, “It’s the sound of classic rock as written by a guy who never did get Eric Clapton.

Halfway through the recording process, the pandemic hit. The studio shutdown, but Daniel continued writing. “There are songs I wrote last spring[of2020]thatI wouldn’t have come up with otherwise,”he says.“It was that first-of-its-kind moment.

When the band reconvened in October, Daniel had a new batch of songs, and a fresh sense of momentum. “It’s certainly something we didn’t take for granted, that feeling of being in a room with each other,” Daniel says. “That moment was a once in a lifetime kind of feeling.”


Interpol began in New York in 1997, when guitarist Daniel Kessler recruited bassist Carlos Dengler and singer/guitarist Paul Banks to form a band. In 2002, with Sam Fogarino on drums, the band signed to Matador records and released Turn On The Bright Lights, which made it to 10th position on NME’s list of 2002’s top releases and Pitchfork named it the year’s #1 album.

Over the next decade and a half Interpol would go on to wide critical and commercial acclaim, with five subsequent high charting records on the Billboard 200; earning rave reviews across the map from Rolling Stone to TIME; performing on late night television shows including the Late Late show with David Letterman and Conan and playing major festivals like Coachella and Glastonbury and headlining Mexico’s Corona Capital.

The band (Banks, Kessler and Fogarino) have just finished recording their latest studio album with legendary production duo Flood & Moulder, due for release through Matador Records in 2022.

    I just so happen to have Sept 17 & 18 off from work and I am also a fan of both Spoon & Interpol so it is meant to be that I win these tickets.

  2. Dannica on August 31, 2022 at 9:24 am

    I would LOVE to see this show!

  3. Brian on August 31, 2022 at 12:05 pm

    Spoon? AND Interpol?!! What kind of magic is this?! Would love so much to see these shows.

  4. Samantha on August 31, 2022 at 12:05 pm

    Spoon is my favorite band and Interpol is my hubby’s favorite band. What a cool combination! Pick me pick me!

  5. Jon on August 31, 2022 at 4:03 pm

    First time I saw spoon was 2002 and have seen them countless times since. Would love to check out at least one of these sets.

  6. Jeff on August 31, 2022 at 6:24 pm

    I’ve got my camera on.

  12. Amanda Rose Napolitano on September 1, 2022 at 5:11 pm

    I’ve been a huge Interpol fanatic since their first album. Unfortunately the universe has yet to align and I have not had the opportunity to see them play live. They are 1 of my top 5 must see before its too late bands!!

  13. SMP on September 1, 2022 at 5:39 pm

    What a lineup! I love Interpol, so that’s a given good time. I’m not too familiar with Spoon. I’d love to check them out though. I’m sure it won’t be hard for them to win me over 🙂

  14. Robin Washburn on September 3, 2022 at 11:15 am

    It would be so exciting to not have to try watching one of my favorite bands (Interpol) on tippy toes or through a hole in the fabric of that fence surrounding Pioneer Courthouse Square! Would be so pleased if PDX Pipeline could position my girlfriend and I on the other side of that fence 🙂 Interpol rules. Thanks!

  15. Sarah N on September 3, 2022 at 11:58 am

    I’ve never been to a show at Pioneer Square nor have I seen Spoon or Interpol. Would love to remedy all of those things by winning tickets to this show!

  16. Jessica P on September 4, 2022 at 2:37 pm

    Would love to see Spoon again and Interpol for the first time. Sounds like a great night!

  17. Grace on September 4, 2022 at 3:39 pm

    Hi! I would love to see Interpol… I never thought I’d be able to see Interpol- I’ve listened to them since I was a kid, and I’ve only liked them more and more since. it would be so amazing to be able to see them 🥺

  18. Arturo Calilung on September 5, 2022 at 4:34 pm

    My bffs absolute FAVORITE band is Spoon! She ALWAYS talks about them, i would love to take her!

  19. Amanda on September 5, 2022 at 6:24 pm

    A great friend will be visiting Portland for the first time. A show on pioneer square would be such a cool way to experience the city!

  20. Jenny on September 5, 2022 at 8:51 pm

    I’d love to go! My friends and I will be in town on these dates and LOVE spoon and interpol. I haven’t been to a live music event since 2017(?) maybe not even then so this would be huge!

    • Katherine Montgomery on September 12, 2022 at 11:52 am

      Wow, I can’t believe Spoon & Interpol’s forces are uniting! It would be a dream to be picked, especially to surprise my best friend for her birthday – both huge fans and neither of us have seen either of them live before! I can foresee a nostalgic girls eve reminiscing about those ol’ Turn On the Bright Lights car make-outs and Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga dance nights 🙂

  21. Rosa Cristina on September 5, 2022 at 9:25 pm

    Today my heart swings 💕 Both bands are amazing, great musicians it would be so so cool to see them live right in the heart of Portland.

  22. David on September 5, 2022 at 9:50 pm

    For me, this is one of the best shows of the year & I’d be super stoked to win these…!

  23. Mercedes on September 5, 2022 at 11:19 pm

    I would be excited to win these tickets because I’ve listened to Spoon since I was 14 but never seen them in concert!

  24. Allison U on September 6, 2022 at 12:37 pm

    This would be a blast!!

  25. Derp on September 6, 2022 at 12:43 pm

    Spoon rocks it… would love to see them downtown!

  26. Adriana May on September 6, 2022 at 12:46 pm

    Woah. Spoon and Interpol?! Please, please pick me!

  27. Meredith on September 6, 2022 at 12:48 pm

    I am a huge Spoon fan and have recently started getting in to Interpol so this concert has been on my radar for awhile. My dad passed away last year of a rare disease and his birthday is the day after the show, and that day is also a big anniversary for my husband and me. Getting to see Interpol and Spoon the night before would be a great distraction but also an awesome way to celebrate!

  28. Steph on September 6, 2022 at 12:51 pm

    One of my favorite bands who I’ve never been able to see live yet. I wanna WINNNNNNN!! 🙂

  29. Drew Cornwall on September 6, 2022 at 1:09 pm

    I’d like to go because Spoon reminds me of my college years and would love to have a taste of those days again!

  30. Jason on September 6, 2022 at 1:10 pm

    Would love to be able to see this show!

  31. Annie on September 6, 2022 at 1:34 pm

    Would love love love to be spooned up a pile of Interpol!

  32. Amber on September 6, 2022 at 2:27 pm

    What a dynamic duo to see in P-town!
    Yes please and thank you!

  33. Andrew Butz on September 6, 2022 at 5:57 pm

    I’ve been listening to Interpol & Spoon (best albums 2002 & 2005 respectively) for too long without seeing ’em live! And I especially need this show to boost me after MY BIRTHDAY ON 9/11 national day of mourning. Also, please don’t “Gimme Fiction”, but instead hook me up with tix for Saturday 9/17? (Since I’ve gotta be up Monday morning 6:00 AM — because “we [don’t] have 200 couches where [I] can sleep tight”.)

  34. Arianne Kimberly Belt on September 7, 2022 at 8:07 am

    This would be an epic date night for my partner & I….we could SO use a good show/time made worth while. Spoon-ing is one of my favorite things to share🥄

  35. M.S. on September 7, 2022 at 11:04 am

    I love both band’s music and would love to see a show outdoors on a nice September night

  36. John brown on September 7, 2022 at 4:20 pm

    I love these bands

  37. B.H. on September 8, 2022 at 9:26 am

    The way we get by is by seeing this show.

  38. YB on September 8, 2022 at 2:37 pm

    Would be amazing to go to

  39. SHEENA on September 8, 2022 at 3:14 pm

    Interpol is my favorite! I’d love a chance to see them live.

  40. Michael on September 8, 2022 at 6:29 pm

    Two of the great bands of our time!

  41. Pepper Varga on September 8, 2022 at 9:01 pm

    Love seeing shows down here, this is going to be a good one! Thanks!

  42. DC on September 9, 2022 at 3:03 pm

    Two of my favorite bands in one show?!?!
    I want I want I want!!

  43. Kevin McE on September 11, 2022 at 5:57 am

    You’re an incredulous mass of impossibly tiny subatomic particles, forged in the pulsing hearts of stars, swirling around each other in concert to produce a beautiful human being.

  44. Christina M on September 11, 2022 at 3:09 pm

    Two amazing bands- 1 awesome night. Pick me!

  45. Yoshi on September 11, 2022 at 7:00 pm

    What a great show!!!

  46. Heather on September 11, 2022 at 7:23 pm

    Sounds like a great concert and I’d love to experience it. Thanks!

  47. AT on September 12, 2022 at 8:47 am
