Interpol’s Sam Fogarino made an appearance in Tower Records in Dublin on the day of their third, and final show in the Olympia Theatre to spin some tunes. I made it to the set and brought my camera along for the sake of it. His set featured Tame Impala, Beach House, Rocket From the Crypt and Faith No More to name but a few.
I brought along a print from their show two nights before to get signed. He was delighted to see him so well lit as he joked that drummers often get overlooked, especially for lighting. They have a new lighting guy on the Marauder tour who clearly appreciates the guys further back on stage. I’ve met Sam a few times and he has always been one of the most easy going guys to meet and chat to, especially within Interpol.
