Thee Oh... Thanks
Thee Oh Sees

"...And keeping the mock-Velvets tradition intact, here are The Baths equipped with a Moe Tucker gal on the essential floor tom, stand up snare, single cymbal and tambourine. This possibly accounted for an amazing rhythm set-up that had me tapping a toe or two in place. The distortion didn't deliver initially, but with some obligatory "bah bah bahs," the guitar ruckus evolved into something Thurston wouldn't mind having perform at one of his "All Tomorrows Parties" um, you know, parties.

Third up is Odawas. And wait, what's this? A pedal steel, Dylan harmonica-headset and double stacked keyboards? This ought to be a hoot! Somehow the keyboards take on that eerie whirling effect that made Grandaddy's "The Software Slump" so otherworldly and compelling. It was refreshing to hear the steel being taken to task by letting the twang serve as a trippy sound composite amid the keyboards." [Impose]

That review comes from the free BrooklynVegan Noise Pop Happy Hour show at Bender's in San Francisco on Saturday, February 27th (That Ghost was also on the bill). It was a rare case of a show I helped put together, but couldn't actually be at. Luckily someone posted a few videos which you can also watch below.

Also luckily all three of them are heading to Austin for SXSW (where I actually will be), and one of them (Odawas) is even playing another BV party: the free BrooklynVegan/AnSo day show at Spider House on Thursday, March 18th. There's 19 bands total on that bill including Thee Oh Sees who kick off a tour with fellow Bay Area band The Baths on March 10th. All dates for all bands, and those videos below...
