THE ’POL POSITION
El Pintor, the upcoming album from Interpol, doesn’t drop until September. But the new singles (“All the Rage Back Home” and “Anywhere”) sound like a triumphant return to form. Interpol plays the Boulevard Pool at the Cosmopolitan on August 21 ($20).
BALLEW IN THE FACE
Presidents of the United States of America used PledgeMusic to crowdsource their first new album since 2008. Catch classics “Peaches,” and “Lump” and “Kitty,” as well as great new material at House of Blues at Mandalay Bay on August 23 ($23).
ON SALE NOW
I don’t care what it says on the marquee—John Fogerty is Creedence Clearwater Revival. Expect Fogerty’s swampy vocals, ace guitar playing and a setlist of CCR standards when Fogerty plays the Pearl at the Palms on October 17 ($63-$153).
