Taper’s Alternative: April 24, 2022 The Sultan Room Rooftop


Billing themselves as “Not the Jam Band We Want However the Jam Band We Deserve,” Taper’s Alternative are considerably mysterious newcomers to the scene—they usually’re positive having enjoyable with it. Right here’s what we all know: the band is a jam supergroup comprised of Dave Harrington (Darkside), Chris Tomson (Vampire Weekend), Alex Bleeker (Actual Property), and Zach Tenorio (Arc Iris). Past that scant data, it wasn’t till just lately that tunes have emerged. Beforehand out there solely at merch tables on the band’s few California exhibits earlier this yr, the cassette-only Alternative Tapes Vol. 1 circulated word-of-mouth for some time earlier than lastly touchdown on Bandcamp together with Alternative Tapes Vol. 2. (I hear Vol. 3 is within the works.) Songs on the tapes are titled solely with single or double curly quotes on each volumes however should you pay attention onerous perhaps you’ll hear some similarities to jams circulating in “dealer” circles on the Dwell Music Archive.

We have been lucky to get invited out to the band’s unique (and bought out) first present in New York (or Jam Hollywood to these within the know). Two units below the celebrities at Brooklyn’s Sultan Room (one of many premier locations for jams within the borough) and we have been bought 100% on Taper’s Alternative. These guys even have their very own pageant! Take that Phish. And go purchase some tickets to Alternative Fest.
