No, by now its apparent that hordes understand Interpols understated echoes of the Pixies, Joy Division, the Smiths, the Cure, etc., else the lads wouldnt be jaunting around cavernous, publicly financed buildings named for cell phone companies. Still, they may have ballooned too quickly. This show would be tell-your-grandkids good at a small venue such as the Polish American Club on NW 22nd Avenue. Instead, youre going to witness indie-rock-turned-arena rock, but dont let that ruin it. If youre going, and you should, for Chrissakes, pretend youre in Brixton circa 1983. When they bust out Slow Hands, imagine the ceiling and walls much snugger, and raise three minutes of bedlam. Doors open an hour before the show, which the Liars kick off at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday at the BankUnited Center (1245 Dauer Dr., Coral Gables). Tickets will set you back $28.50, plus the usual service gouging by Ticketmaster, which you can call at 954-523-3309, or patronize digitally at www.ticketmaster.com.
