For our August Album of the Month, CAS brings you a truly exciting contemporary classic. Interpol’s epic 2002 debut is one of the definitive documents of the explosive New York postpunk revival that transformed the indie world in the noughties. With its spiky rhythms and ringing guitars, its instantly infectious melodies and its twisted, melancholy tales of romance and burnout in the big city, Turn on the Bright Lights still sounds amazingly fresh, and its legacy has only grown among a new generation of fans.

On Sunday August 18, we’ll present it in full, on vinyl and in audiophile hi-fi in the Velvet Lounge at The Beauchamp Hotel for what should be a rousing end-of-winter session!


Time and Date: Sunday August 18th 5:00pm – 9:00pm


The Beauchamp Hotel, 265-267 Oxford Street, Darlinghurst, Sydney
