Tube is offering up a double dose of dark and brooding local acts tonight. There is reason to celebrate, too. If online music calendar PC-PDX is correct, then Arctic Flowers have been playing shows for exactly four years to the day. They bring a blend of UK anarcho-punk and goth rock, full of sharp guitar and urgent yet melodic vocals to the bill. The band recently announced they've begun work on a new album for Canadian label Deranged Records. Smoke Rings combine dancey drum beats and synth-punk with cutting guitar. The band formed this past winter from the ashes of a handful of projects, including dance-punk party patrol Glitter Express. Noelle Magia's vocals echo and bounce off the walls, as she hurls herself through the audience in a tireless effort to lure unexpecting showgoers into the band's trance. They just self-released their first EP on cassette last month. CHIPP TERWILLIGER
