I wasn't expecting to be blown away by the support act.

These photos are by no means the best I've ever taken. They are grainy and obscure. (I am soooooo ready for some summer-daylight shows, or some shows where the lightman does some magic and illuminates the bands.) But if any one of these pictures inspires any one of you to go check out this band, these Soft White Sixties, it will have been worth the effort to wring some drops of light out of the camera.
And... I just found another good reason, if not the best reason, to head to BottleRock in Napa. The Soft White Sixties are playing on the Saturday.
Find The Soft White Sixties on Facebook, on Twitter, on Instagram, and music is available from their website through iTunes and Amazon.
