[MUSIC] Thursday, Nov. 29
In one of the catchiest rock songs of the year, “The Base,” Paul Banks sings, “I spoke to the base/And the base says we’re there/And the base says we win.” Let’s hope the fanbase of Interpol, the band Banks fronts, shows up for his intimate gig at the House of Blues Courtyard Stage. Banks’ eponymously solo collection may not be as tensely wound as Interpol’s, but it occupies the same well-crafted, melodic, post-punk space. With The Neighbourhood. 10 p.m.; House of Blues at Mandalay Bay, 3950 Las Vegas Blvd. South, 632-7600, $15.
