Sam Champion seem like stand-up guys, but they're gonna have a hard time blowing anybodys mind at a venue that nobody goes to.

Tapes 'n Tapes drew about 5 people there last month, and that was right when their blog buzz what at its most dizzying heights...

The Slip are an amazing band that are def pushing out new sounds. If you are into "sonic", the Slip are it.

Yeah! At last The Vegan is covering The Slip. I saw The Slip & Apollo on their holiday tour. A match made in heaven, if you ask me.

Hey BV,

The Slip invited me down to their showcase last night. This was my third time seeing them, and I was curious to hear their "new" sound. I posted some pics and my impressions on the set, feel free to come by and take a gander.
