Fighting crime and restoring justice with the power of rock—in their own way, of course. Not so much Russian astronauts as they are superhero musicians, Sacto’s the Cosmonauts blend power pop and new wave with plenty of Zakk Wylde-esque guitar squeals to formulate their unique style. These four self-proclaimed comic-book-style adventurers embrace alter egos such as the Atomic Fist on vocals, the Hellion on guitar, Red Lightning on bass and Captain Neptune on synthesizer. Did I mention these guys also wear costumes? Donning full-fledged primary bright colors, this band will ring in the new year the right way—POW! 9426 Greenback Lane in Orangevale,
