Rock & Pop


When: Tue., Sept. 27, 9 p.m. 2016

Seattle surf-punk band Tacocat is known for shining a spotlight on women’s issues. On their 2014 release, NVM, the band parades the subjects of menstruation and harassment through the streets in a punk rock rainbow jubilee of bright chords and flagrant sing-songy vocals. On their newest release, Lost Time, the group strikes up the band once again in the name of every-Millennial annoyances, from anonymity-cloaked cyberbullies (“The Internet”) to white collar aristocrats turned obnoxious frat boys when work is over (“I Hate the Weekend”). But amidst the ra-ra’s of rebellion against modern vulgarities, the title Lost Time (an X-Files reference) suggests that the band wishes it didn’t have to waste its youthful energy combatting the bad behavior of so-called adults. Time suck or not, Tacocat makes a rave of the riot, bringing crowds a heavy dose of tambourine -topped party pop. (Bethany Kaufman)
