You crowned The Shake-Ups your fave pop band in all the land this year; and we’d like to add another title to that, too: Most Pop Culture-Centric Band. Seriously, Pat O’Connor and company make power pop tributes to My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic; Steven Universe; and the Beatles — plus some non-tribute music, too. This surftastic band is a regular at conventions, have dropped three solid albums, and will probably come up with a new tribute by the time we publish this issue.
