"Scree! Blip blip!" Then a whirring, and a backbeat like a hammer hitting sheet metal tacked to plywood: These are the sounds of local duo Eats Tapes. Well, that and a peppy Roland synth, pounding out a joyful little rhythm. The semi-low-tech act's new wave color scheme and mildly mysterious air keeps it a lighthearted but never goofy dance sensation in an overly serious hipster scene. Marijke Jorritsma and Gregory Zifcak's love of analog sounds and gadgets (think pre-digital proto-rave music or early Aphex Twin) usually manifests itself in private homes, so enjoy this chance to see the pair "out." Japanther shares the stage at 9:30 p.m. at the Hemlock Tavern, 1131 Polk (at Post), S.F. Admission is $6; call 923-0923 or visit www.hemlocktavern.com.
