The spunky and aggressive pop-punk sounds of Go Betty Go first blasted out of a Glendale, CA, garage in 2001.
Sisters Nicolette and Aixa Vilar (lead vocals and drums, respectively), guitarist Betty Cisneros, and bassist Michelle Rangel gigged hard around the area and began turning heads in both the Latin community and L.A. rock scene. Go Betty Go inked a deal with SideOneDummy Records in the fall of 2003, and their debut EP, Worst Enemy, was issued the following spring. They toured seemingly nonstop from coast to coast behind it before entering the studio with producer Ted Hutt (Flogging Molly) to lay down a full-length album. The resulting record, Nothing Is More, was released in September 2005, but when Go Betty Go suddenly canceled the end of their supporting tour, rumors began to circulate that they were breaking up. Though that was not the case, Nicolette did ultimately exit the band's ranks in early 2006 and the remaining gals found her replacement by May in new lead singer Emily Wynne-Hughes. ~ Corey Apar, Rovi
