Tapes 'n Tapes (aka Elvis vs. Elvis) live @ Hexagon Bar 4/20/06

All photos from the Tapes 'n Tapes gig here. Slideshow here.

Video footage of "Insistor" from Hexagon here.

Isn't it required as an mp3/music blogger to report on Tapes 'n Tapes? (I believe it's commandment #4)! Yeah, I thought so...

You may have heard about the recent shakeup in local band Tapes 'n Tapes. Turns out they played a "secret" gig last night @ Hexagon Bar under the name "Elvis vs. Elivs". I was there, of course.

They opened, Erik Applewick on bass, with "Just Drums" and breezed through most of the album The Loon, closing with "Jackov's Suite". It sounded really tight... From talking with Erik after the show it looks like he'll playing the upcoming tour with TnTs... cool guy...

Do check these guys out on tour soon.

And of course, here's the mandatory mp3s (just in case you live under a rock):

mp3: Tapes 'n Tapes - Insistor
mp3: Tapes 'n Tapes - Cowbell
mp3: Tapes 'n Tapes - Omaha

More mp3s on their website.

David, I really thought you were going to guest on the trombone during this gig!???
