Rounding the corners: In the run-up to recording Interpol’s latest release, Marauder, drummer Sam Fogarino repeatedly asked himself: “How can I make shit swing?” The post-punk veterans were six albums and more than 15 years into their careers, yet had never strayed from the rock influences of their home turf in New York City. Consulting with R&B greats such as Otis Redding’s drummer Al Jackson Jr. and funk hitmaker Terry Lewis pushed the trio’s sound into groovier territory, softening its trademark rigid guitar and drums.

Wednesday 9/4. $35-40, 8pm. The Jefferson Theater, 110 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 245-4980.
