I Tawt I Heard a Puddytat

Friday, Dec 4: Tacocat • post post punk pop • Red Light Cameras

Kelly O.

Everything about Tacocat is candy-coated. Technicolor-dyed hair, surfy guitar vibes and unabashed riot grrl revivalism combine in this energetic quartet from Seattle to make some of the best pop-punk tunes you've heard since you became okay with listening to pop-punk again. It's good music for gleefully burning pictures of your ex. With punchy but sweet vocals and catchy choruses that you'll be humming for days, their latest album NVM is worthy of heavy rotation. Their second LP (and first on the Hardly Art label), NVM features beefed-up production but the same garage-y, DIY sound from their earlier EPs, Woman's Day and Take Me to Your Dealer. Stand-out tracks are "Crimson Wave" (which is about exactly what you think it's about) and "Psychedelic Quinceañera," a ballad about a girl who would rather forego the regular quinceañera formalities on her 15th birthday and get hella blitzed with her amigas instead.

After exhausting the basement venues of Washington, Tacocat is heading inland on their winter tour with Sallie Ford. Red Light Cameras open. Pay your 10 bucks and get ready for the most colorful 21+ mosh pit of your life! Low Spirits • Fri Dec 4 • 9:30pm • $10 • 21+ • View on Alibi calendar
