After five years as a Bay Area band, Tempo no Tempo bid adieu 6/4/10
We're sad to report that Tempo no Tempo's journey as a Bay Area indie mainstay is drawing to a close. In a recent email, the band wrote: It's been an amazing stretch of bandhood, and we've accomplished more than we had dreamed of during our existence.Â We particularly want to thank our former bandmate Chris Cadena for playing with us for four years, Shawn Reynaldo for putting out our 2nd record and always calling us out to be a better band, the lovely Splinters for being our sister band, CK Ladzekpo for teaching us African polyrhythm and especially all our families [...]

Noise Pop 2010: We Were Promised Jetpacks, The Lonely Forest, Bear Hands, Tempo No Tempo @ Slim’s
Some Noise Pop shows are a sum of their parts: openers with enough reputation to draw a substantial portion of attendees, rounding out an evening that features a particular headliner, creating a true showcase of bands. Other shows, however, start out being almost entirely about the headliner, and the crowd will reflect as such. Saturday's show at Slim's seemed to fall into the latter category. The venue was absolutely packed to the gills with enthusiastic fans of the Scottish band We Were Promised Jetpacks. There was the giant push to the stage as the headliner trickled on; there were outrageous [...]
