“I Hate The Weekend”
I love a band that has fun, makes great, short, fun songs, and just is in love with life. The four actual best friends—Emily Nokes (vocals, tambourine), Eric Randall (guitar), Lelah Maupin (drums), and Bree McKenna (bass)—came together in their teens and early baby twenties and coalesced into a band eight years ago, and you can feel that they’ve built both their lives, and their sound, together. 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. I so want to hang with this band. I love them. I can see hanging with them at a slumber party, watching Valley Girl, and dancing around, singing into your hairbrush. They have that great pop sound of Julie Brown and Josie Cotton. Have fun.
