Keeping Score

As Jim Morrison noted, “Film spectators are quiet vampires.” But Thursday at O Cinema (90 NW 29th St., Miami), expect more than just stoned-faced voyeurs lurking in the theater’s shadows. At Cinema Sounds #8, presented by Roofless Rex and the Borscht Film Festival, live bands will suck the boring out of the room when they soundtrack cult-classic films with their custom scores. For the eighth installment, the bill includes ’80s-style party thrashers Acidosis, soundscapers Viking Funeral, power-violence band Gorilla Pussy, and the no-wave pop sounds of Meat.

Although organizers are tight-lipped about the night’s lineup of celluloid, consider the rare gems from past programs. At the last Cinema Sounds, four bands laid down experimental tracks over Alejandro Jodorowsky’s Holy Mountain, Chan-wook Park’s Oldboy, Pot o’ Gold with Jimmy Stewart, and Francis Ford Coppola’s Rumble Fish. Cinema Sounds starts at 10 p.m., and tickets cost $8. Visit o-cinema.org.
