Nominated for Best Band in this year’s Best Of The East Bay contest, Planet Booty is on the rise and for good reason. Maybe it’s their radiant energy and stage presence, or perhaps it’s the unique mix of elecro-funk, soul, and live instrumentation. Either way, Planet Booty is coming to Oakland on Friday, and you should be stoked. “I love Oakland so damn much. … Something feels right when we are on stage in Oakland, like everything makes sense to both the audience and us on stage,” explained Dylan Germick, Planet Booty’s lead singer. “We can’t wait to drench Oakland in our sweat and love.” With a new album set for release in August, and a seven-stop tour across the Northwest in the cards, Planet Booty fans have a lot to look forward to. A new single dropped on July 25, and Friday night at Starline Social Club might be an appropriate time and place to hear it live. So, go and embrace your inner booty.
Friday, July 28, 9pm, $12-15, 2236 Martin Luther King Jr. Way, Oakland, StarlineSocialClub.com.
