Onuinu was also featured on Time Magazine’s recent list of 11 Great Bands (IN THE WORLD) You Don’t Know (But Should)

If my math is correct, that means 2 out of 11 bands featured by Time Magazine are Apes Tapes bands.  That’s not a bad percentage.  Also, props to our buddy Andrew Sloan of Monstrous Media, who did the videos featured in both the Onuinu and Rad City write-ups.

  The time has come…
 We’ve been hibernating all winter, ehem, and a little bit of summer I suppose.  Tomorrow will be the first Apes Tapes event this year, featuring some of Portland’s best kept secrets.  Palmas, who graciously remixed one of Radiation City’s tracks earlier this year, will be headlining the night, along with Apes Tapes artist Adventures! With Might.  The night is being co-hosted with another Portland label, Circle Into Square.  Big Pauper, Cars and Trains, and Harvey Girls (all represented by this lovely label) will be starting the night off, tomorrow night in fact, at Rotture.  Show starts at 9:30, $7.  Be there.
