Harlem Shakes - Opening for Tapes 'n Tapes!

Wow, I'm not sure how I forgot to post about this last week, but the opener for the upcoming Tapes 'n Tapes shows has been announced. By T'n'T themselves, and it is none other than Harlem Shakes. For those of you who are not familiar with the 'Shakes, they are a new five-piece band that I was introduced to by Todd Goldstein (Arms), that play a genre-defying blend of music that has to be heard to be truly appreciated! I've included one of their songs off of their freshly released EP "Burning Birthdays" which is outstanding (see Carpet Baggers). Anyway, if you are going to see Tapes 'n Tapes, get there early, you won't regret it! The post by Tapes 'n Tapes is below:

man, we are feeling good today!!!! our work week is ending, we're
going to a show tonight, and we're feeling sassy. so we thought we'd
