Seattle female quartet Tacocat were joined by Los Angeles four-piece The Regrettes and Seaside, Calif., outfit Burnt Palms for a propulsive show at Bottom of the Hill last Friday.
Led by their charismatic lead singer/guitarist Lydia Night, who dropped to the floor and played her guitar while lying down at one point during the evening, The Regrettes blazed through an infectious set of garage pop that energized the small, tightly packed club. But don’t be fooled by the group’s appearance. For such a relatively young band, The Regrettes commanded the stage, exuding both a presence and confidence that many older performers could only wish to possess.
Tacocat followed and capped off the night with a frenzied set of “riot grrl” pop punk that lit up the crowd and had many audience members bouncing off the walls — and each other.
