Tapes ‘n Tapes were heralded by their Internet Promotions Manager Chad Tickle (actually, it was comedian Aziz Ansari). Mr. Tickle told the crowd that he wanted us to go home and blog about the band, or else he would kill our dog. And if we didn’t have a dog, he was going to beat up the weakest member of our family. I found his TnT blog jokes particularly funny, since there were literally about seven music bloggers within a five foot radius of me.
My first thought during Tapes ‘n Tapes’ set was how ironic it was that the first show of Sunday last year (Thunderbirds Are Now!) and the first one this year (Tapes) should both be so energetic. Curiously, Josh pointed this out about five minutes after I had that thought. He steals all my good stuff.
