Interpol are back! In this week’s Time Out New York, we're bringing you a revealing interview with the post-punk phenoms (lead singer and bassist-guitarist Paul Banks, lead guitarist Daniel Kessler and drummer Sam Fogarino) before the band returns to New York for a homecoming gig at Terminal 5. Nearly two decades into their career—and down a member—the band released a reenergized album this fall (El Pintor) and is thriving after leaving Capitol Records for smaller label (Matador). The three musicians tell us what they have planned for the future, why New York hasn’t changed much over the last 15 years and their favorite spots around the city. (AC Gears, Angelica Kitchen)
Elsewhere in the magazine, we've got a rundown of the hottest dating apps and singles events in the city. From literary speed dating to a new app controlled entirely by women, these fresh techniques may help you finally snag a cuddle buddy for winter. And if that doesn’t work, get a group of friends together and hit up one of the best holiday markets in the city (Winter Village, Artists and Fleas) or a restaurant offering decadent “large-format feasts” for groups (Bodega Negra, John Dory Oyster Bar). In any case, with reviews of the new Channing Tatum-flick Foxcatcher and David Auburn’s new play Lost Lake, as well as a look at the Moby-Dick reading marathon, we've got plenty to keep you busy this week.
