The band’s initial stirrings came about as bassist Shaun Durkin and guitarist Kevin Johnson worked out Sex Pistols riffs during their middle school years. Those chug-a-lug lessons are very much evident on songs like “Mirror,” though the polish of time and practice and production value shines through clearly. Songs like “Celebration, FL,” underscore the eerie tones found around nearly every corner on this year’s Jinx. There’s the hint of that ol’ shoegaze mentality, particularly in Durkan’s vocals, which add a terrific atmosphere to the music. Tonight’s opener, Stagnant Pools, reels in the droney vibes of Bloomington, Ind., brothers Bryan and Douglass Enas. One guitar. One drum kit. A hell of a lot of noise and emotion. Temporary Room is a haunting, jangly album that surprises the listener with its simplicity. They perform tonight at 8:30 p.m. at Beachland Ballroom. Tickets are $10. (Sandy)
