Tapes 'n Tapes & Mancino

For the few of you who've been reading EAR FARM since the long long ago (in EF terms that's since like early October) you probably know that I've covered Mancino since day one and you might remember the prediction I made about Tapes 'n Tapes on October 20th of last year - "Watch them blow up when they come to NYC next time". They've started to do so even before coming back to NYC by getting talked about on tons of blogs and landing at #21 on the CMJ chart (among other noteworthy things)...and well, the dates here in NYC are set and finally upon us. You can catch them playing at any of the fine shows below, though I'd recommend the date with one of EAR FARM's favorites Mancino. Sadly, I will be out of town Thursday to Monday and won't be at any shows in NYC this weekend. Do not fear, Tapes 'n Tapes and Mancino will still blow up without me around and I'll betcha there will be plenty of other blogs covering these shows anyway.

Tapes 'n Tapes NYC dates:
7 January @ The Delancey with Mancino
8 January @ Pianos
9 January @ Mercury Lounge
12 January @ Rothko

Songs to listen to:
Tapes 'n Tapes - "Cowbell"
Mancino - "Hiccup Lines"
