PAPER
on the front lines of cultural chaos since 1984.


Tampa's own Merchandise take the Miami stage tonight at the Vagabond (30 NE 14th Street, Miami) with Teengirl Fantasy. The lo-fi video (released in August) for "In Nightmare Room," off the free album Children of Desire, shows band members spitting up fake blood and playing dead in a dark basement while a drum machine beats sixteenth-notes and guitar chords reverberate. Eyelinered singer Carson Cox even pulls the old flashlight-under-chin move, proving that, like many a goth frontman before him, he has more fun putting on a show than he does putting the scare in you.
