Additional Information

It's nearly impossible to oversell how combustible a live performance from San Francisco's THEE OH SEES can become. Over the past decade the band has morphed from a showcase for rock savant JOHN DWYER's post-COACHWHIPS sensitivity into the hardest working band in garage-rock, delivering simple melodies and creepy lyrics, frequently delivered in a whacked-out monster-voice. Fleshing out guitars and drums with flutes, bells and thrift store synths, Looney Tunes-worthy narratives are rolled into summery retro nuggets and delivered in playfully sinister, Sesame Street-on-LSD tales. With a score of releases on Captured Tracks, In the Red, and Tomlab, to name just a few, THEE OH SEES must be seen to be believed.  Minneapolis’ THE BLIND SHAKES return to the Bottle supporting their newest LP, Seriousness, a spastic, rumbling, anxious noise punk effort full of guitar-heavy tracks that plays like a smack to the face.  We’ve seen TERRIBLE TWOS tear apart an overflowing room of rabid dancers, and in the words of Victim of Time, the fellas consistently “create a frenetic agitated ball of organ-fried ferocity that always seems to be spinning out of control, yet brings it all back home with ballsy audacity.”  Inside-out-echo-laser-garage-psych-rock SF trio THE MALLARD open here tonight with their deranged take on the naked abandon of 60s punk.
