Vocalist Karl Hyde talks, moans, whispers -- and oh yeah, sings -- in an always-captivating way, and his wordplay adds still more to the charm. But of course, it's Underworld's trance-based rock beats that make you move. The British duo of Hyde and guitarist Rick Smith first came to fame in the mid-'90s, with "Born Slippy" featured in the movie Trainspotting. On the new Barking, the men serve up more ravishing pop-focused dance-floor wonders in the style of 2002's "Two Months Off." No wonder, since they worked with guest electronica producers including D.C.'s own Dubfire (of Deep Dish), D. Ramirez and Paul van Dyk. Monday, Oct. 25. Doors at 7 p.m. Nightclub 9:30, 815 V St. NW. Tickets are $45. Call 202-265-0930 or visit 930.com.
