Tapes 'N Tapes (due at the Bluebird Theater tonight with the Chain Gang of 1974) may have initially snagged some recognition outside of its Minneapolis home by way of the obligatory music blog circuit, but the quartet has long outlived the hype. The band's jangly sound has grown bigger and more polished as of late, allowing for the exhausted "indie rock" label Tapes was once pinned with to dissipate.
After spending some time on the bigger XL Recordings label, Tapes 'N Tapes went back to its self-released roots for its third studio album, this year's Outside. This show is sixteen, and up and tickets are $14.75-16. Doors open at 7 p.m., bands start at 8 p.m.
