LIVE PERFORMANCE VIDEO: Tapes ‘n Tapes, “SWM” (live at Backyard BBQ from MTV2 Twin Cities week exclusive)

According to Gimme Noise, the Minneapolis metropolitan area has taken over the airwaves at MTV2 and MTV2.com this week, where they’ll be hosting interviews and performances that they taped two weeks ago during Soundset and such. To start the week off, Subterranean has posted a video of the local boys in Tapes ‘n Tapes showing off their acoustic skills on a rendition of “SWM”. Pay attention to MTV2.com throughout the week for more performances with TC artists such as P.O.S., Mike Mictlan, and more.

For today, I’m back with a round-up of the week in music videos and live performances that I cared to watch (except for one – if I find a d/l of the awesome Faith No More set from Download Festival that I live-streamed, I’ll be sure to post it later). Enjoy the list I’ve compiled; you’ll need to set aside a good chunk of time if you want to watch them all!

Mid-week late night viewing party: Sonic Youth, Rancid, and Blink 182

Last night, I only had the time to watch Sonic Youth jam on a more abrasive version of “Sacred Trickster” for their glorious new album The Eternal (review probably pending) on the Late Show with David Letterman before I hit the hay. However, for those who have been paying attention, this week has certainly been a good one for fans of the mid-90s alternative rock scene, as Conan O’Brien hosted an appearance from Rancid last night and Jimmy Kimmel featured a reunion performance from Blink 182 consisting of only classic songs from their back catalog on Tuesday. Since I was too sleepy to watch it all, I’ve rounded up all the videos for you to watch here this afternoon. We begin with the best:

Mos Def’s new album The Ecstatic dropped today and I’m hoping that all of you went out there and copped it, because I took one listen and it’s impressive (review later this week). Here is a video of Mos performing the track “Quiet Dog” off of the new album on Late Night With David Letterman. GO GET THE ECSTATIC!
