Tapes 'n Tapes @ Music Hall of Williamsburg - 19 April 2008

It's been awhile since I've arrived early and waited with this much anticipation for ALL the acts on a multiple-band bill; Saturday night was definitely a worthy occasion to break out such fanboy-ness. Capping off powerhouse performances from Vampire Hands and White Denim, Tapes 'n Tapes ripped through another fantastic set that leaned heavily on material from Walk It Off while occasionally peppering in favorites from The Loon.

At this point, I've lost count of how many times I've seen Tapes live (and this dates back to their first NYC show at Sin-e in 2004) and they always bring it, but apart from the music what stood about this particular performance was the BRO factor in the audience. Awesome as always, Tapes successfully overcame the fact that singer Josh Grier lost his voice prior to Friday's Fillmore show; however, they now seemed to have a bigger potential distraction on their hands....shirtless BROS throwing beer and thrashing about as though they had rubber bands tied around their junk (you know, like bulls at a rodeo? )! See the horror (and Tapes overcoming via rocking) after the jump....








Listen:
"Hang Them All"

    I personally felt that Tapes was underwhelming and that perhaps White Denim was the highlight of my evening at the Music Hall. I don't think there was enough variation in Tapes' set and the distance the keyboardist has from the rest of the group was painful to watch. I don't think the lead singer looked over to him once and looking at these photos you can see the interaction was always with the bassist. Even more interesting was the audience at this show. Since when did New Jersey folk travel out to BK to watch a band from Austin? Those 'bro's' deserved a kick in their nuts.
