On Saturday, February 15, Thee Parkside held the first annual Bay Area Record Label Fair otherwise known as (B.A.R.F). Not only were independent record labels there to sell records but some of their artists were performing as well. The record labels Grazer Records and Father/ Daughter Records had the band Cocktails playing the second slot of the day. Cocktails the slop pop band from San Francisco consists of Patrick Clos (guitar, vocals), Lauren Matsui (guitar/synth, vocals) Ryan Rinker (bass), Phil Lantz (drums) and Joel Cusumano (lead guitar).

Amidst a mostly crowded Thee Parkside, Cocktails set up on the stage. With a quick rap of the drums from drummer Phil Lantz, Cocktails lead off the show with some “Tough Love”. Next up they play the fairly melodic moving “Hurt You”. After a thank you to the crowd from Lauren Matsui, Patrick Clos quickly mentions they have some 7” vinyls for sale before kicking into the catchy tune “Panda Eyes” from their 7” “Friday”. Cocktails then play “Don’t Bother” before doing their own unique version of John Fogerty’s song “Almost Saturday Night”. Rolling through their set they play the dynamic and drum laden “Multiple Personalities”, the poppy “Bob Pollard’s Mind” and the loud rocking “Jealous Boyfriend”. Cocktails rounds out the show with another catchy song from their EP “Friday” called “Let It Come Down” right before ending with the song “Hey Winnie”. Lauren Matsui takes on the duty of lead vocals in this musically appeasing tune.

Cocktails play fairly quick tunes with elements of bubblegum pop and rock. Their songs are fun and rousing making your body bob along and helping add to their live performance. Want to have a fun night seeing some live music? Drink some cocktails and check out a live performance of the band Cocktails. Keep an eye out for the release of their new LP on Father/ Daughter records due out later this year.
