Catch SF rockers the Soft White Sixties before they hit this year’s BottleRock Festival. Coming on like a Bay Area version of New Orleans outfit the Revivalists, the Soft White Sixties pack in an impeccable amount of soul into a seriously solid sound.
The band is regularly described as a straight-up neo-soul act, though their far-reaching influences call for a far broader categorization. Frontman Octavio Genera veers into Black Keys territory on Get Right‘s “City Lights” and immediately rolls into the Sheepdogs on debut LP track “Live in the Evening”. It’s enough variance to please the masses and keep fans across the country coming back for more.
