Do you know TacoCat, yes it's a palindrome. And a kick a$$ surf punk pop band from Seattle. With some relevant lyrics. Their sound is energetic, bright, with some chill stuff.
Why go all the way to Sac? That's the closest they'll be to the BayArea. So far as I know.
If you haven't, look them up on YouTube. KEXP have good full concerts of them performing.
