Soft White Sixties 

When: Fri., Jan. 4, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: free

There's no irony in The Soft White Sixties' name -- its music sounds exactly like what you'd expect of the music from the period: straightforward rock 'n' roll tunes with catchy guitar hooks and soulful melodies. Singer Octavio Genera adds to it his gravely, bluesy vocals, which can turn a simple love song into a gut-wrenching plea. While its music draws heavy inspiration from The Rolling Stones and The Who, The Soft White Sixties shares more similarities with modern bands like The Strokes and The Dandy Warhols, but with a lot less pretension. There'll be dancing and swaying and maybe even a lighter in the air when The Soft White Sixties plays The Uptown (1928 Telegraph Ave., Oakland) on Friday, Jan. 4, with fellow retro rock bands Mahgeetah and Whiskerman. 9 p.m., free.
