It's a big weekend for Long Beach's Fingerprints record store–both The Dears and Tapes N' Tapes are performing in-stores on Saturday and Sunday.
Montreal's the Dears are in town pre-SxSw to perform a warm-up gig featuring songs from their latest set, Degeneration Street. The Eulogies also open the in-store appearance, so you get two intensely atmospheric bands for the price of none. RSVP at (562) 433-4996; if you buy Degeneration Street (CD or LP) or the Eulogies' Here Anonymous (LP with CD), you get in first and receive a poster from the event.
On Sunday at 2 p.m., Tapes 'n Tapes will bring their indie-pop songs to Long Beach to support their latest release, Outside. It's RSVP to get in, but again, if you purchase a Tapes n' Tapes album, you head to the front of the line for with a free poster for their in-store.
Fingerprints Records, 420 E. Fourth St., Long Beach; www.fingerprintsmusic.com. The Dears perform Sat., 6 p.m.; Tapes N' Tapes perform Sun., 2 p.m.
