So I know someone posted the Phllidelphia set- which is the same as the DC one.

I thought they sounded good if not great, but it was just loud, not very heavy. So there was a different vibe to this show.

"Ides of Gemini had vinyl, maybe a shirt, and friggin cassette tapes ($7) of their new album. Ok so I almost flipped the merch booth when I saw that. I swear these hipsters..."

Because having tapes automatically makes you a hipster.

I grew up listening to cassette's, so I think it's awesome that a band would still make their music available in that format. Don't understand what's "hipster" about that? But then again, I've never been too sure what a hipster is supposed to be since I don't recall ever seeing one in my life.

Hipster's are like UFO's to me. I've read and heard stories about them but have never actually encountered one in real life :lol:

For a new album, who sells new copies of cassette tapes? Who has a lust for the retro and the 'ironic'? What is the point- who is buying a cassette instead of a Vinyl or CD (or digital) (Ok that one person who replied...)? Why are they buying/offering a cassette? I can't recall the last time I saw a band sell a NEW tape at a show. Since like 2001.

Hell, Maybe *I'm* missing the point.


I have cassettes (my bros, random yard sales, cheap finds), and a cassette deck on my stereo (so hard to find one 8 years ago or whenever I looked for one with CD AND Cassette). So I am not saying cassettes are bad- I have tapes that I rarely listen to. I pick up tapes of old rare albums or something I don't have on DC/digital yet...

It's the whole mentality of 'oh lets bring back these old quaint things' or whatever their whole deal is supposed to be about.
