Nerve Beats are bringing their self-described situationist art punk all the way from Honolulu, Hawaii, for a West Coast run and a handful of Portland-area shows. It's a homecoming visit of sorts for Travis Wiggins, the member of Nerve Beats who used to live in Portland and played in bands like Please Step Out of the Vehicle, Wooden Indian Burial Ground, and more. Tonight's show, the last of the Portland run, takes on an experimental lean; Nerve Beats are joined by the manic solo noise project Soup Purse and the rapid, thundering drums and guitar one-two punch of Mustaphamond. Nerve Beats' recent live album, Radio Action, has the three-piece romping through an energetic and jazzy blend of post-punk. It's an excellent live document that's lively and spastic, but also tight and focused. If it's any indication of the set they have lined up for tour, the group should find plenty of new followers during their short Portland residency.
