The Soft White Sixties
Having played the Main Stage at San Francisco's Outside Lands Music Feastival, being named as one of Paste Magazine's "Top 25 Shows at SXSW 2013", and setting up to play again the the 2014 SXSW Music Showcase, The Soft White Sixties are increasingly gaining recognition for their infectious live performance. Since 2010 they have been perfecting their sound, appropriately dubbed Working Class Soul - a gritty edge to modern pop. They mix their vast influences into a hard-hitting and confident force reminiscent of classic R&B and Rock 'n' Roll but with a contemporary sensibility. Octavio Genera (vocals), Aaron Eisenberg (guitar/keys), Ryan Noble (bass), and Joey Bustos (drums) combine soulful melodies, deep grooves, and fuzzed-out hooks to form a completely distinct sound. Check out this San Francisco band at Sierra-at-Tahoe on March 22, fresh from their 2nd SXSW music showcase! More Info...

Vokab Kompany
This San Diego groups consists of MC/singers Robbie Gallo (a South Tahoe High School grad!) and Matt Burke, backed by their 4-piece band of awesome. Their live show combines multiple synths/keys with bass/drums to create a sound that doesn't quite adhere to a specific genre. Matt Burke describes their new album, VKCE: “As musicians, it’s an ever evolving world; genres are a thing of the past, so we (VK) were really lucky to have teamed up with producers that pushed the boundaries of our boxes. We got outside our comfort zone, stamped a VK next to CE, and the result was something new entirely.” The brazenly dynamic sound on VKCE has quickly garnered the attention of television and film. The record already has two national commercials, for a major carmaker and Southern Comfort. More Info...
