Provo-based band Book on Tape Worm’s music has been called "slumber-pop," but not because it will lull you to sleep. Their songs are lush and melodic, and, like the best dreams, they sweep from soothing tranquility to energetic grandeur. Book on Tape Worm released their eagerly anticipated first album late last year, and they’ll join us on Thursday to talk about their music and about their Slumber Party concerts. We’ll also talk to Austen Diamond of City Weekly and Velour Gallery’s Kaneischa Johnson about the best local music in 2012.
Book on Tape Worm is hosting their 4th annual Slumber Party concerts, with special guests Mideau, on Friday January 4 and Saturday January 5 at Velour Live Music Gallery in Provo. Both shows begin at 8p and will be followed by a film screening. Audience members are encouraged to bring pillows and blankets. For more info, visit Book on Tape Worm's Facebook page.
