Brotherhood of the (Sad Baby) Wolf
I guess we have to talk about The Shins now
By Marisa Demarco
Eschewing the Shins-centric perspective Sad Baby Wolf's publicist urged, Marisa Demarco shares the tale of a local indie rock quintet whose members value family, friendship and maintaining a sense of humor as much as they enjoy rocking out in the limelight.

Flyer on the Wall

Skate demos, graffiti battles, food and performances by enchanted-land bands—ranging from Burqueño hip-hop crew Zoology to Taoseño black metal duo Willow to Española-based glitch / dubstep act SIMpill—make the hour-and-a-half drive well worth it.

Tacocat • post post punk pop • Red Light Cameras
By Robin Babb
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 Quinceñera,” a ballad about a girl who would rather forego the regular quinceñera 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!
