“As good as the genre gets”

Another spotlight for this coming show at the Uptown–this time with The Bottle Kids.


Its old school power pop ala The Nerves, Paul Collins or The Plimsouls. Expertly weaving signature pop harmonies, crunchy guitars and relentlessly catchy hooks, The Bottle Kids offer a soundtrack equally appropriate for an afternoon daydream, a poolside party with your crush or a long drive down the rocky, windy coast. Conceived as the musical vision of frontman/songwriter/producer Berkeley native, Eric Blakely, The Bottle Kids embody the best of both “then” and “now,” combining Blakely’s deep roots in early 80’s power pop with a keen sense of songwriting and production for a refreshing, innovative and stubbornly irresistible sound. The debut release, Such a Thrill, came out in 2013, to widespread critical acclaim. Musoscribe’s, Bill Knop, conveyed a simple yet common theme, “Harmonies meet guitar crunch and the result is as good as the genre gets.”

See them this Thursday , January 16, Uptown Nightclub!!!!!
