This year’s Grammy Awards was an interesting show that featured amazing tribute songs and performances. The first performer was Camila Cabello, who opened by singing her hit song, “Havana.” The performance looked like something right out of a musical from the brightly glowing house she started singing in, and all the people in outfits popping […]

Things are coming full circle in 2019 for Glendale-based Latina pop punk quartet Go Betty Go as the band is heading out with fellow pop-punk outfit The Dollyrots for a quick cross-country jaunt that wraps-up with shows at Space in San Diego on Thursday, March 28, Slidebar Rock-N-Roll Kitchen in Fullerton on Friday, March 29  and The Hi Hat in Los Angeles on Saturday, March 30. Fourteen years ago, Go Betty Go dropped its debut full-length album, “Nothing Is More,” on SideOneDummy Records and the popular indie label release is being pressed for the very first time to vinyl and being re-released via Wiretap Records in the spring. “This is something we’ve wanted to do for years and people have been asking us and, quite honestly, I have no idea why we didn’t do it sooner,” drummer Aixa Vilar said with a laugh during a recent phone interview. “I can tell you that it’s being pressed right now, so they’re just baking in the oven. We’re so excited about it and know that a lot of people are looking forward to it.” #gallery-1704553-1 { margin: auto; } #gallery-1704553-1 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 33%; } #gallery-1704553-1 img { border: 2px solid #cfcfcf; } #gallery-1704553-1 .gallery-caption { margin-left: 0; } /* see gallery_shortcode() in wp-includes/media.php */ Pop punk band Go Betty Go (from left: Michelle Rangel, Aixa Vilar, Nicolette Vilar and Betty Cisneros) will play San Diego, Fullerton and Los Angeles with The Dollyrots in March.

(Photo by Rudi TCruz) Vilar said she inherited her parents’ record collection, but hasn’t really started one of her own other than snagging the vinyl releases of the bands Go Betty Go has toured with at their merch booths throughout the years. “It’s kind of like summer camp in that way where you collect souvenirs,” she said. “Who would have thought that would be the way people would want physical copies of music now? That this would have survived the music industry? It used to be CDs, but of course vinyl has made this huge comeback and I think it’s nostalgic for a lot of people and for collectors it’s just a really fun thing to have.” [related_articles location=”left” show_article_date=”false” article_type=”automatic-primary-section”] By the time “Nothing Is More” dropped in 2005 the band had already been headlining dates across the country and done stints on the coveted summerlong Vans Warped Tour, but the grind proved too much for vocalist Nicolette Vilar, who suddenly quit the band because she was simply burned out by the process. Though the band members had momentum going at the time and tried to keep on track by bringing on new singer Emily Wynne-Hughes, eventually they just called it quits. Several years later, after a one-off reunion in 2012, all four original members — sisters Aixa and Nicolette, guitarist Betty Cisneros and bassist Michelle Rangel — decided it was time to revive the band as more of a part-time gig and the group self-released its “Reboot” EP in 2015. Aixa, the self-proclaimed workaholic in the band, said in the beginning she’d always wonder why they weren’t doing more and push to constantly be onto the next thing, however, now she and the rest of the band are just enjoying the ride. “We are lucky to be doing this,” she said. “I think about how amazing it is now that we can still do this with what time we have for the band because we’re all out living our personal lives and exploring what we do individually. I’ve just learned to appreciate it all more now and we’re all looking at it as much more of a glass-half-full than a glass-half-empty situation. We do have a lot of opportunities now that I know come from all of that hard work we did in the past, but we’ve narrowed it down to weekend trips, shorter tours and things like that so we’re more comfortable and we’re not driving ourselves crazy.” A little break and a lighter work load has led to the band creating new music together as well. Though it’s not certain if it will be an EP or a full-length at this time, Aixa said there’s certainly enough material to create an album, however, she’d be happy with another EP release just to get some new music out. The band will not be playing any of those new songs during this short tour since they haven’t fully been fleshed out for a live show just yet. Go Betty Go was announced as one of the bands playing the 25th Anniversary Vans Warped Tour shows at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View on July 20-21 alongside Bad Religion, The Aquabats!, Face to Face, Less Than Jake, Fishbone, The Vandals, Thrice and many more, so there could be a few new songs in the set mix by then. “It was cool to get the call like ‘Hey, we want to invite you to our birthday party’ and it was like ‘Hell yes, we’ll come to your party!’,” she said about being asked to join the Warped dates. “We did Warped Tour for three summers and then some one-off shows here and there so we’ve done our duties with Warped Tour. It’s not an easy tour to do and any band will tell you, but it really shapes a band. We have fans to this day that first discovered us either through the Warped Tour compilation albums we used to get placed on when we’d play or people who just saw us there. It really opened a lot of doors for us and we have these amazing memories, so being able to celebrate the 25th anniversary with all of these other bands on the line-up that we just love, it’s such an awesome thing.” From the beginning Go Betty Go has performed and recorded songs in both English and Spanish. When its debut EP, “Worst Enemy,” came out in 2004, the lead single “You’re Your Worst Enemy” was as popular as the fiery cut “Son Mis Locuras.”  It’s nice now, Aixa said, to hear more of that in the mainstream with pop and hip-hop radio stations playing songs that are in either English or Spanish, or a mix of both. Latin stars such as Luis Fonsi, Becky G, J. Balvin, Bad Bunny, Nicky Jam and more have had huge success more recently as they’ve crossed into the mainstream with their own hits as well as collaborations with stars like Cardi B, 21 Savage, Nicki Minaj and Camila Cabello. “Some of that music is not my cup of tea, but it’s so cool that it’s finally happening for those artists and that people are more open minded to it,” she said. “They might not understand the song, but they still like it or maybe it will teach people another language. We’re much more of a globalized world now and everyone is being exposed to everything so that’s a part of it. Here in California, bilingualism is huge, but it’s now happening even in the Midwest so it’s exciting that it has transcended.” Go Betty Go With: The Dollyrots When: 8 p.m. Thursday, March 28; 8 p.m. Where: Space, 3519 El Cajon Blvd., San Diego Tickets: $12 at Ticketfly.com; 21-and-over only Also: 8 p.m. Friday, March 29 at Slidebar Rock-N-Roll Kitchen, 122 E.

Fourteen years ago, Go Betty Go dropped its debut full-length album, “Nothing Is More,” on SideOneDummy Records and the popular indie label release is being pressed for the very first time to vinyl and being re-released via Wiretap Records in the spring. “This is something we’ve wanted to do for years and people have been asking us and, quite honestly, I have no idea why we didn’t do it sooner,” drummer Aixa Vilar said with a laugh during a recent phone interview. “I can tell you that it’s being pressed right now, so they’re just baking in the oven. We’re so excited about it and know that a lot of people are looking forward to it.” #gallery-1891876-5 { margin: auto; } #gallery-1891876-5 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 33%; } #gallery-1891876-5 img { border: 2px solid #cfcfcf; } #gallery-1891876-5 .gallery-caption { margin-left: 0; } /* see gallery_shortcode() in wp-includes/media.php */ Pop punk band Go Betty Go (from left: Michelle Rangel, Aixa Vilar, Nicolette Vilar and Betty Cisneros) will play San Diego, Fullerton and Los Angeles with The Dollyrots in March.

(Photo by Rudi TCruz) Vilar said she inherited her parents’ record collection, but hasn’t really started one of her own other than snagging the vinyl releases of the bands Go Betty Go has toured with at their merch booths throughout the years. “It’s kind of like summer camp in that way where you collect souvenirs,” she said. “Who would have thought that would be the way people would want physical copies of music now? That this would have survived the music industry? It used to be CDs, but of course vinyl has made this huge comeback and I think it’s nostalgic for a lot of people and for collectors it’s just a really fun thing to have.” [related_articles location=”left” show_article_date=”false” article_type=”automatic-primary-section”] By the time “Nothing Is More” dropped in 2005 the band had already been headlining dates across the country and done stints on the coveted summerlong Vans Warped Tour, but the grind proved too much for vocalist Nicolette Vilar, who suddenly quit the band because she was simply burned out by the process. Though the band members had momentum going at the time and tried to keep on track by bringing on new singer Emily Wynne-Hughes, eventually they just called it quits. Several years later, after a one-off reunion in 2012, all four original members — sisters Aixa and Nicolette, guitarist Betty Cisneros and bassist Michelle Rangel — decided it was time to revive the band as more of a part-time gig and the group self-released its “Reboot” EP in 2015. Aixa, the self-proclaimed workaholic in the band, said in the beginning she’d always wonder why they weren’t doing more and push to constantly be onto the next thing, however, now she and the rest of the band are just enjoying the ride. “We are lucky to be doing this,” she said. “I think about how amazing it is now that we can still do this with what time we have for the band because we’re all out living our personal lives and exploring what we do individually. I’ve just learned to appreciate it all more now and we’re all looking at it as much more of a glass-half-full than a glass-half-empty situation. We do have a lot of opportunities now that I know come from all of that hard work we did in the past, but we’ve narrowed it down to weekend trips, shorter tours and things like that so we’re more comfortable and we’re not driving ourselves crazy.” A little break and a lighter work load has led to the band creating new music together as well. Though it’s not certain if it will be an EP or a full-length at this time, Aixa said there’s certainly enough material to create an album, however, she’d be happy with another EP release just to get some new music out. The band will not be playing any of those new songs during this short tour since they haven’t fully been fleshed out for a live show just yet. Go Betty Go was announced as one of the bands playing the 25th Anniversary Vans Warped Tour shows at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View on July 20-21 alongside Bad Religion, The Aquabats!, Face to Face, Less Than Jake, Fishbone, The Vandals, Thrice and many more, so there could be a few new songs in the set mix by then. “It was cool to get the call like ‘Hey, we want to invite you to our birthday party’ and it was like ‘Hell yes, we’ll come to your party!’,” she said about being asked to join the Warped dates. “We did Warped Tour for three summers and then some one-off shows here and there so we’ve done our duties with Warped Tour. It’s not an easy tour to do and any band will tell you, but it really shapes a band. We have fans to this day that first discovered us either through the Warped Tour compilation albums we used to get placed on when we’d play or people who just saw us there. It really opened a lot of doors for us and we have these amazing memories, so being able to celebrate the 25th anniversary with all of these other bands on the line-up that we just love, it’s such an awesome thing.” From the beginning Go Betty Go has performed and recorded songs in both English and Spanish. When its debut EP, “Worst Enemy,” came out in 2004, the lead single “You’re Your Worst Enemy” was as popular as the fiery cut “Son Mis Locuras.”  It’s nice now, Aixa said, to hear more of that in the mainstream with pop and hip-hop radio stations playing songs that are in either English or Spanish, or a mix of both. Latin stars such as Luis Fonsi, Becky G, J. Balvin, Bad Bunny, Nicky Jam and more have had huge success more recently as they’ve crossed into the mainstream with their own hits as well as collaborations with stars like Cardi B, 21 Savage, Nicki Minaj and Camila Cabello. “Some of that music is not my cup of tea, but it’s so cool that it’s finally happening for those artists and that people are more open minded to it,” she said. “They might not understand the song, but they still like it or maybe it will teach people another language. We’re much more of a globalized world now and everyone is being exposed to everything so that’s a part of it. Here in California, bilingualism is huge, but it’s now happening even in the Midwest so it’s exciting that it has transcended.” Go Betty Go With: The Dollyrots When: 8 p.m. Thursday, March 28; 8 p.m. Where: Space, 3519 El Cajon Blvd., San Diego Tickets: $12 at Ticketfly.com; 21-and-over only Also: 8 p.m. Friday, March 29 at Slidebar Rock-N-Roll Kitchen, 122 E.

The debut solo album by singer Camila Cabello, the eponymously titled Camila, is a warmly produced set of romantic pop, punctuated by several rhythmically infectious Latin-influenced tracks informed by her Cuban heritage. Notably, Camila comes roughly two years after Cabello‘s much publicized departure from the all-female pop ensemble Fifth Harmony. While her exit begged some concerns (was she a self-centered diva?
