the blank tapes
Shades of classic rock and 50's/60's pop permeate The Blank Tapes' stoner/pych-rock vibes. Hailing from San Francisco, Matt Adams is a prolific songwriter -- not to mention a talented visual artist -- with a timeless approach to music. Now in perhaps its leanest and strongest form yet, The Blank Tapes are a trio these days, featuring Adams along with girlfriend/resident-Moe Tucker-style-drummer Pearl Charles, and D.A. Humphrey on bass, and they’re ready to spread their songs across the land, taking us all on Vacation.

On Tuesday, March 16, BTR threw an unofficial day party in Austin, TX, during SXSW at The Liberty, a great East Side bar with a sweet outdoor space. In the first of two videos featuring the bands from that show, we check out explosive blues rock duo Black Pistol Fire who split their time between living in Austin and in their original home-city of Toronoto; Saddle Creek skronk pop band UUVVWWZ from Lincoln, NE; mind-bending Philly noise poppers Bleeding Rainbow; and Antenna Farm Recordings' Austin-based songwriter, Dana Falconberry. In the second of two videos featuring the bands from that show, we check out San Francisco buzz band Social Studies; Portland, OR, indie-poppers Radiation City; Montreal minimalist psych-rockers Suuns; and California-based stoner/psych rockers The Blank Tapes. Crack open a Lone Star and get an exclusive look at this massive music festival from some of the bands at the center of it all!
