Mon., Feb. 28, call for time and price. Transit, Sixth and Spring Garden sts. 215.925.8878. www.transitnightclub.com

Now that Interpol have dodged the sophomore slump and continue to seduce both critics and mainstream audiences, they just need to win over those few fickle hipsters who still resist. Interpol bassist Carlos D-he's the one sporting the sharply slanting haircut and gun holster-might have just the trick, since he's doing DJ sets after select shows during Interpol's current tour with Blonde Redhead. That means that after the Electric Factory show (if you even have tickets-it's sold out), you can follow Carlos over to Transit to see just which sly slabs of vinyl he'll throw your way. "I try to retain some eclecticism without wackiness in my sets," he says via email. So it's no shock he spins the likes of Depeche Mode, Bauhaus, Ministry and Billy Idol-but who expected cult heroes Link Wray and Tammy Wynette or radio hits like "Hey Ya!" and "Seven Nation Army"? Sometimes he even bites the bullet and throws out Joy Division's "Transmission," proving he stopped sweating those comparisons long ago. Maybe you should too. (Doug Wallen)
