If you live on the Does It Slap? tour route, you should go see G. Green. Yes, they are my good friends and favorite partymates here in Sacramento, but ruminating on them as objectively as possible, I still recommend them highly because they pretty much spearhead the current "Sound of Young Sacramento", and they are one of the best bands going in Sacto or anywhere if you crave janglepunk poptunes, crazy energy, bold and original singing style, and rad girlpower rhythms. They mix up the sweet garagey noisepop charmers with some surprising and effective swipes at kick-in-the-teeth punk which covers a lotta bases. The band started as Andrew Henderson's solo bedroom recording project as a teenager in Provo, Utah, and although the songs are more linear and songlike and plenty pop-sensible now, his unique personality as a frontman, songwriter, and vocalist still keep this band from sounding too much like any other. Liz is consistently electrifying on drums and maintains the power and intensity level of even the most shambolic G. Green songs. Brutal bashing power like the first time I saw Mika Miko with Kate Hall on drums...but Liz has developed an excellent sense of when and how to roll and fill with purposeful pizzazz, and I've still not seen another drummer who appears to have so much fun while playing. Dyl-Dog's back in the band to complete the cutest couple on guitar and bass with Brittney. This lineup played on the best shows I saw all of 2010 in a basement of a small house in Twin Falls, Idaho, and if more fans of fun and frenzy had seen that magic, I do believe that you'd all be seeing and hearing a lot more from them. 'Til then, they've got a great
attitude...still serious about playing real songs and making friends with strangers. A new 7" will not out in time, but an album's worth of songs is in the can and sounds great.
