Can’t Post, Gotta Work

posted by on July 16 at 10:47 AM

Ari’s on vacation, so I’m compiling the Live/DJ listings this week and man, are there some tragic band names. I should keep working, but I had to share the worst one I’ve come across this morning. It’s a band called Tacocat.


Yeah, Tacocat.

As in a taco… made with a cat? I’m not sure.

I decided to listen to them, though, and the first song that started playing on their MySpace page was called “Annual Violation,” a heavily-distorted and classic riot-grrlesque number about the pains of having to get that yearly Pap Smear.

“Sitting on the table in a paper dress/Q-tip crammed/My vagina’s in distress!”

They’re playing the Funhouse Wednesday, July 25th. Also, their name is the same when spelled backwards. Neat, huh? Also, and perhaps most importantly, the name makes me think of this:


Maybe it’s not the worst name after all.

Paul mentioned Tacocat in Party Crasher a while ago. I love that name, mostly for its palindromosity, but also because it's composed of two of the best things ever.

In the Party Crasher column it was printed as "TacocaT," and at first I thought "Tacoca-T? What the heck is that supposed to mean?" Then I figured it out. True story.

I don't know, 'Shower of Smegma' is pretty strong. I need a Shower of Smegma t-shirt. I'll take a Tacocat shirt too.

So wait, you don't considering posting on Slog/Line Out as "work." Wow, you and everyone else as the Stranger sure don't get A LOT of "work" done!! ;-)

I'm surprised no one mentioned Tacocat's famously incendiary live shows?!?
