Many of us were surprised to learn that the same band that refers to themselves as the ‘Helsinki Vampires’ are above the age of 15, not to say their haircuts are any less remarkable. As with any Goth-rock band, Finland’s 69 Eyes, include plenty of Type-O Negative and Danzig worship only they hold the techno in favor of some tasty ‘80s hard-rock sleaze, like the undeniably catchy new single “Dead Girls Are Easy” off Back In Blood. Catch them in NYC on Oct. 20 at the Gramercy Theatre. Tix $18. 69eyes.com.
