Best '60s Dance Monthly - 2010
"Ooh La La" at the Paradise Lounge - CLOSED
As long as baby boomers remain in positions of power in the media, the mythos of the '60s will never die. Free love, Woodstock, the bloated dinosaurs of classic rock — they've all been used to sell products ad infinitum. Luckily, here in San Francisco, there exists a wealth of DJs devoted to the more obscure delights of the era. Every second Friday at the Paradise Lounge since February 2009, "Ooh La La" highlights the garage-rock, girl-group, French pop, and Northern soul songs that time has forgotten. Featuring longtime vinyl jockeys Major Sean, Sergio Iglesias, Russell Quan (of the Mummies), and Howie Pyro (of D Generation), "Ooh La La" remembers when the '60s were about the music, not the marketing, man.
