Shark Tape

The Free At Noon at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia is SOLD OUT, as Shark Tape performs a live midday concert on Friday.



Philadelphia-based indie trio Shark Tape takes the stage at this week's Free At Noon. Mixing classic alt-rock elements with 80s pop guitar riffs and vocals that will evoke bands like The Smiths and Echo and the Bunnymen, the group is coming to light in the best way possible. This fall Shark Tape releases its latest album, Marathon, which they worked on with producers Jeff Ziegler and Phil Nicolo. XPN Welcomes Shark Tape to MilkBoy to celebrate the release of Marathon on November 22nd, but you can get a taste of the album by joining us at World Cafe Live this Friday, November 14th.

Recent Release: Marathon
Release Date: November 18, 2014

Made possible by support from XPN Members, Comcast, and Septa.
