Soft Rock Sunday
Soft Rock Sunday is the ultimate gathering of grooves to soothe. DJ Mara Schwartz (a former L.A. Weekly contributor from back in the day, currently a music publishing maven) knows her stuff, so don’t expect an ironic hipster deal. OK, the bearded, man-bun contingent will probably dig it, but with this gal at the helm, expect a more accessible yet thoughtful mix on the decks, a bonafide all-vinyl bonanza of cool retro sounds: hook-filled yacht rock, melodic soul jams, and mid-tempo pop hits your mom used to love, that (with enough time passed) it’s finally cool to admit you like, too. You get the jist: Hall & Oates, Bread, Kenny Loggins, The Doobie Brothers, Christopher Cross, et al. So feather those tresses, order up a Bartles & Jaymes wine cooler, and get ready for an afternoon (into early eve) delight." - Lina Lecaro, LA Weekly
"This just-launched themed night with music-biz lifer Mara Schwartz is a severe throwback -- like, to a time before you remember, when ultra-mellow acts like Bread were mainstream. With '70s soft rock with an open dance floor, get ready to awkwardly slow dance and get romantical. Or just have a couple drinks and watch other people do that." -- Thrillist
