The Shigs 3

Bassist Emily Mullet-Foster surveys the excited crowd while singer Lacey Prescott rips on the guitar.

Formerly Folsom Youth, (minus former lead singer Kristin Sollecito) the punk rock band The Shigs find a happy medium between '80s punk and '60s garage rock with a rough and rebellious sound reminiscent of the Buzzcocks and The Easy Cure/The Cure.

Lead singer and guitarist Lacey Prescott delivers an extra authentic slice of punk with her raucous voice and dynamic rhythm guitar that is complemented by skilled lead guitarist Rachel Spung’s heavy and grinding licks. Emily Mullet-Foster takes her years of experience as a bassist to a new level by creating intricate, jazzy bass lines, drawing out drummer Kim Sollecito’s creative and energetic beat, adding to the band’s overall fuzz and hardcore sound. While The Shigs may have only been together for 5 months, their talent and dedication has led them to perform all over Monterey County.
