Wampire, Eternal Tapestry, the Shivas

REED JACKSON
9 pm., Friday February 08 | $8.
Mississippi Studios

[EERIE INDIE] It’s probably the band’s name, but I can’t help but picture a Transylvanian summer night whenever I hear Portland’s Wampire. The duo’s off-kilter organs, distant whistles and fluttery guitar lines create an eerily cheery vibe that makes me feel both warm and weirded out at the same time. The band’s newest single, “The Hearse”—from its upcoming Polyvinyl debut, and which opens with a menacing keyboard line before tearing open to a punchy, drum-driven lullaby—could serve as the intro music to a cheesy 1980s horror flick. I can definitely see a stake-wielding Corey Feldman rocking out to it. Too bad the Woods, the local music venue housed in a morgue, closed last year—it always seemed to fit the band’s creepily fun aesthetic perfectly.
