THEN (3 of them, tonight @ Irving Plaza)
NOW (tonight @ Bowery Ballroom)
Tapes n Tapes replaced their bassist (Shawn Neary) with a new bassist (Erik Appelwick) back in April of 2006.
Shawn (who also plays trombone) went on to join Cloud Cult in 2007. Cloud Cult is constantly changing their lineup, but Sean still plays with them to this day. I guess my point is just that I hope Tapes n Tapes don't accidentally stumble across a drunk and ready-to-rumble Cloud Cult (known in Minneapolis for giving severe beatdowns) tonight on the Lower East Side.
NOW (tonight @ Irving Plaza, tomorrow @ MHOW)
Cloud Cult also played a show at Union Hall last night (with the Forms). Tapes n Tapes also play Music Hall of Williamsburg on Saturday (with White Denim).
