Thee Oh Sees
Thee Oh Sees
Thee Oh Sees are the latest incarnation of songwriter, singer, guitarist (and Castle Face fearless leader) John Dwyer’s ever-evolving pop-folk psychedelic group. Dwyer, who hails from Providence, RI, has been active on the San Francisco indie scene since the late ’90s, working with several bands, including the Coachwhips, Pink & Brown, Yikes, Up Its Alive, and Swords & Sandals, among others, and he formed OCS (which is an acronym for Orinoka Crash Suite, Orange County Sound, or whatever Dwyer decided it was on any given day) initially as a vehicle for the experimental instrumentals he was producing in his home studio.
In time OCS morphed into an actual band, and worked under the usual flurry of names, most notably as the Oh Sees or the Ohsees, and eventually as Thee Oh Sees, featuring Dwyer on guitar and vocals, Brigid Dawson on vocals and tambourine, Petey Dammit (sometimes listed as Petey Dammit!) on guitar, and Mike Shoun on drums. Along with a relocation to Los Angeles in 2014 the band has re-spawned a few times into their current incarnation of Tim Hellman on bass, Dan Rincon and Paul Quattrone on drums.

All the Saints
"Conceived in a rehearsal space near six flags and incubated in a basement on Moreland, Atlantabama's All the Saints draw on everything from Loop to Sabbath to Gun Club to Live at Pompeii to In Utero. "We lived together in this house in East Atlanta and didn't really leave the basement except to sleep and work. We probably practiced 20+ hours a week."


Occasionally having friends on stage for fun, Matt, Jim and Titus have held the Saints together since 2005. AtS cover the range of hazy intensity, hypnotic fuzz and gold melodies over shards of noise with an earned maturity. One song you're worshiping at Sleep's Holy Mountain and the next you're floating in a peaceful pool of the Plugz placidity. Most songs you're doing both. Halleluwah played by Kyuss. Youth of America written by Dead Meadow. Helter Skelter performed by Stereolab. A primal groove train on fire. All the Saints."
