If you caught Interpols recent appearance at the Uptown Theater, you may think theres no point in lining up with the goth kids for She Wants Revenge tonight in Lawrence. Both bands owe too much to Joy Division. And as far as monotone warbles go, Interpols Paul Banks is a better substitute for Ian Curtis than SWRs Justin Warfield. Yet, during lonely nighttime car rides and better in dimly lighted, packed clubs, SWRs pounding beats and songs about sadomasochistic love affairs become creepily intoxicating. Tap into your dark side tonight at The Granada (1020 Massachusetts in Lawrence, 785-842-1390). Tickets cost $15.
