French Cassettes 

When: Fri., Feb. 7, 9 p.m. 2014
Price: free
French Cassettes uses enthusiastic handclaps, soothing vocal harmonies, and surf-rock riffs to craft sweet tunes with good vibes. Three of the four members of the San Francisco indie pop-rock quartet have been performing together since they met in high school in the Central Valley in 2006, and it shows: Gold Youth, which the band released last August, is a polished, exuberant, and infectiously sunny album. In the past few months, the band has gained momentum, having performed at Great American Music Hall, The Chapel, Bottom of the Hill, Brick and Mortar Music Hall, and the Bay Brewed Festival. It was just added to this year’s Noise Pop lineup, and is also scheduled to play several shows as part of SXSW in March. This Friday, you can catch French Cassettes when it plays for free at Awaken Cafe (1429 Broadway, Oakland), as part of First Friday festivities. Oakland-based Afro-pop band Guy Fox will open the show.
