The Blank Tapes 7" Release TONIGHT w/ Collin, Ash Reiter, Pat Hull @ Amnesia + Next Wednesday @ Rickshaw Stop + Sat July 28 @ Starry Plough

hi everyone!
the days pass quickly lately, and thus, lo and behold, the day has come... 

Seaweed Sway Presents:
The Blank Tapes (7” Release Show)
Collin Ludlow-Mattson & the Folks
Ash Reiter
and Pat Hull
at Amnesia

more about tonight (thanks Collin for this description!):
The title of the new Blank Tapes’ 7”, “I’m Back,” has real sentimental resonance for San Francisco’s indie-rock community. Matt Adams, the Blank Tapes’ front person and songwriter, decamped from San Francisco (which he called home for a large part of the 2000s) to Los Angeles about a year back, leaving a palpable void in his wake. As the great William Bell song says, “You don’t miss your water till your well runs dry.” And you don’t miss the heart of a music scene till he’s gone and said goodbye. While this show does not mark Mr. Adams’ return to the City By the Bay, it will be a reunion for him and a number of his old San Francisco cronies—among them Sean Olmstead and Collin Ludlow-Mattson, who he will be playing with in the group Collin Ludlow-Mattson & the Folks (the folk-rock band whose 2011 self-titled album he co-produced and played many instruments on). The album is being put out on 20 Sided Records, a label run by David Mitchell, who is a buddy of Matt, Collin, and Ash as well - a true community-spirited entrepreneur who does what he does for the love of great songs.
The song “I’m Back” is a reminder that while Matt Adams may come and go, his songs aren’t going anywhere. They’re always right back where his friends and fans left them—in their hearts. A soulful burner of a song with Motown catchiness and Grateful Dead grooviness, “I’m Back” exudes timelessness and tastefulness. Also back is Ash Reiter (San Francisco’s top-tier chanteuse of sweet-rock). This is her first gig in San Francisco since returning from her very-successful East Coast tour. Tagging along from the East Coast with Ms. Reiter is Brooklynite troubadour Pat Hull, who will be starting the night off with a batch of well-wrought songs in the singer-songwriter tradition.
