|TACOCAT – Live In-Store Performance
|Thursday, July 21st 7:00pm
The bio says “Hanging out with Tacocat and listening to Tacocat are remarkably similar experiences, like the best party you’ve ever been to, where, instead of jostling for social position, everyone just wants to eat candy and talk about Sassy Magazine, sci-fi, cultural dynamic shifts, and bad experiences with men.” and it nails the fun, quirky, nerdy, art rock, grrl-power, party-all-the-time atmosphere that practically oozes from the speakers as soon as the needle drops.
Pitchfork said “Only the sarcastic irreverence of Tacocat can lift you out of your vortex of suckitude.” which perfectly mirrors our experience here at the shop, when we’re down and troubled, and we need a helping hand, we reach for Tacocat.Spin says “Tacocat…have earned a reputation for slinging punchy power-pop in the unruly vein of All Girl Summer Fun Band and Tiger Trap.” And while we would have added in L7, Cub, Shonen Knife, and The Julie Ruin, Spin nails not only the Grrl-power aspects, but also the power-pop songcraft that embraces their early 90s roots, while tying them to the elusive “now”.Check their soundcloud page for some tasty samples.
