In addition to feting the band’s grand return to the music scene, the party is also the public’s first chance to tinker with the museum’s first mobile app. A personalized portal to all things at the Met, it’s sure to find a prominent spot in the smart devices of art lovers everywhere. And, if you miss out on tickets to this shindig, the app is available for free at the App Store, and Interpol are playing Bowery Ballroom on Wednesday, 9/4.
