Tape Swap Radio is a music series dedicated to independent and DIY music in the Lehigh Valley. Since June 2013, we have been airing live performances recorded in our Bethlehem, Pennsylvania recording studio, Shards. Our first season of Shards Sessions, all 18 performances and interviews, are available under the Shards Sessions tab. We have bands from as far away as British Columbia, Canada to bands from our own backyard in Bethlehem.

As Spring 2015 gets underway, we are prepping a new season's worth of material to premiere. We have 16 live sessions already recorded that we hope to bring to everyone as soon as we can. We are in talks right now with radio stations both in and outside of the Lehigh Valley to expand Tape Swap Radio like never before. We hope you'll take this ride with us and help bring this music to more and more people. If you know a public or college radio station that should be airing Tape Swap Radio, shoot us an email.

You can also follow Tape Swap on Facebook and Twitter for more updates. And, as always, thanks for your support of us and this music.

Tape Swap Is Bringing Lewis & Clarke to the Lehigh Valley

feb 25, 2015

We may be feeling a deep freeze in the Lehigh Valley but Tape Swap is looking ahead to the spring with the premiere of new sessions and videos in the works. In the meantime, we have some events that are part of the Tape Swap Presents concert series coming up that we're exited to share with you.

First up, Lewis & Clarke will be making a rare appearance in Allentown on Saturday, February 28, 2015 at the Alternative Gallery. This will be Tape Swap's first show at the Alternative Gallery, so we're beyond excited. Fans of the band Low, take note. The Delaware Water Gap, PA-based band are touring in support of their new album, Triumvirate, released in 2014 on La Société Expéditionnaire. VoirVoir and Goodnight Stars Goodnight Air will be supporting.

Tickets are $7 and can be purchased early here. All ticket money supports the bands and the venue. Doors are at 7:30 pm, music at 8:00 pm. The show is all ages. Check out more information on the event's Facebook page.
