Tapes 'n' Tapes, 2009, Mercy Lounge, Nashville, TN

Steph and I are big fans of Tapes 'n' Tapes, so when they came to Nashville we jumped on the chance to see them, especially for only $10 a pop. Unfortunately (for the band) the show only sold 50 pre-sale tickets and the venue was far from full. This is too bad, considering just how much TnT rocks (literally and figuratively). I'll get the least interesting (but also best) part of the post out of the way: Tapes 'n' Tapes played a really good show, and we were very happy that we got to see them in a great venue without being crushed by mobs of people.

The opening act, Wild Light, was less than stellar. We discovered after the show began that one of the members of the opening act was also staffing the merch table (good thing we avoided making any snide comments while we got some TnT swag), nice.
