Thee Oh Sees+Excepter+Catatonic Youth+Pink Skull


A preternaturally wired ball of nerves, John Dwyer pours the same mutant energy he dumped into rabid garage band the Coachwhips into his latest obsession, weirdobilly tube-blowers Thee Oh Sees. Now on their seventh-or-so album, Thee Oh Sees pre-date the shit-fi wave of bands like Wavves, get half the attention now, and still top them with their gorgeous harmonies and strawberry alarm hooks. With local noiseniks Excepter, terrifying garage prospect Catatonic Youths, and minimalist bummer dance crew Punk Skull.
