Tacocat – “I Hate The Weekend” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

Tacocat have released the video for “I Hate The Weekend,” the lead single from their upcoming album Lost Time. The song is an upbeat punk tune to remind those that let loose on the weekend that their partying can be somewhat of a nuisance for those who do not have the time off. The video, directed by Jessica Aceti, captures this childish ignorance. We’re invited to a wild, confetti-clad Tacocat house party that turns into a saccharin-rich candy craze. With pinatas on their heads, the band performs their working class anthem as party-goers erupt in an embrace of youthful exuberance, fighting to get their hands on anything sweet. As the video comes to an end, though, everyone crashes down from their sugar high — that is, at least until Friday comes again. Watch the video below.

Tacocat will be at SXSW later this month, including the Hardly Art Official Brand Awareness Showcase on Thursday 3/17 at Cheer Up Charlie’s. The lineup also includes Protomartyr, Shannon And The Clams, La Luz, IAN, and Dude York. Check out the poster below along with Tacocat’s full SXSW itinerary.
