Start July with Memory Tapes

June 30th, 2011

Davye Hawk was once the frontman of a band called Hail Social, but when that ended he decided to go solo, first under the name Memory Cassette, then Weird Tapes and finally Memory Tapes. His first LP, the dance-pop-filled Seek Magic, has been very well received, and Memory Tapes (above, performing “Plain Material”) played live, with a drummer and backing track, for the first time last year in England. More tours have followed and new album is due soon. Why tell you this? Because you can see Memory Tapes tomorrow night at Mercury Lounge.
