Vista Kicks

Nov. 30, The Olympic



Northern California funk quartet Vista Kicks lists The Beatles and The Bee Gees among their musical influences, but one look at the band makes it plain that the impact of the '60s rockers doesn't stop there—it permeates every aspect of the group, from their close-knit friendship to their high-necked shirts and flowing locks.

The Kicks have been playing together since high school, but made their debut on the national stage in 2015 when they began a series of cross-country tours, following up the EP Chasing Waves (self-released, 2016) with the full-length album Booty Shakers Ball (self-released, 2017), which plays like an old-school party packed into 15 tracks.

On Thursday, Nov. 30, The Kicks will bring their throwback sound—self-styled "a smoked-out collaboration between James Brown and Jimmy Page"—to The Olympic, so be ready for a booty-shakin' good time.
