TACOCAT, a beautiful palindrome with an easily-missed wink to the female anatomy. For over ten years, the quartet made of Emily Nokes, Eric Randall, Bree McKenna, and Lelah Maupin have been putting out sharp-tongued, rainbow-tinted feminist pop-punk tunes with subjects ranging from science-fiction to menstruation to timely social injustices. In that same decade, they’ve been champions and pioneers of the current punk and indie wave of Seattle, pivoting the city’s trademark from grunge and garage rock. The newest album This Mess Is A Place, their first in a Trump world, is a therapeutic effort vacillating between contentious expression and much-needed positivity and escapism. TACOCAT kindly took a moment away from grazing at Tamale House to chat and play some tunes in Studio 1A.
