Lecherous Gaze

When: Fri., Jan. 11, 7 p.m. 2013

Throwback rock seems to be making a resurgence in the Bay Area underground. Not that local bands haven't long been obsessed with sounds from the past, but for whatever reason (tech backlash? black metal backlash?), we're increasingly seeing outfits like Glitter Wizard, Golden Void, Hot Lunch, Hot Fog, and Hazzard's Cure, whose music sounds freshly offloaded from a time machine. Add Oakland "sleaze rock" band Lecherous Gaze (featuring members of the now-defunct Annihilation Time) to the mix. The band released its debut album in October on Tee Pee Records; recorded at West Oakland's Earhammer Studios, On the Skids combines elements of psych and heavy rock (with a punk-rock attitude) for an expertly executed party-in-the-gutter soundtrack. Expect the party to rage on Friday, Jan. 11, when the band headlines Eli's Mile High Club (3629 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., Oakland) with Pins of Light, Swamp Wolf, and Hazzard's Cure. 8 p.m., $7.
