The Interpreter: Live at Largo is a live album and a collection of cover songs, performed by Old 97's front man Rhett Miller at the Largo nightclub in Los Angeles, California. It was released in 2011, the recordings being from something of a farewell performance for the Largo before it closed its doors. In it, Miller covers some of his favorite songs for a venue that was special to him. Miller performs solo on most of the tracks, but is joined by Largo regular Jon Brion on several of them and Joey Santiago of The Pixies on another.
