Tapes 'N Tapes, Oberhofer, The Preakness

When: Fri., Feb. 11, 9 p.m. 2011

Tapes 'n Tapes might be guilty of playing it a bit too safe with its self-released third album, Outside. But in a world where the Decemberists have the highest-selling LP in the country, safe sells now more than ever. These four Minneapolis bed-heads wield a polished batch of indie rock worship by taking cues from the classics (Pavement, Modest Mouse, the Shins) and sculpting their influences into breezy-listening tunes that snarl on occasion.
