Music Around Town

Thee Oh Sees/The Blind Shake/GoldMINES

When: Sun., Sept. 6, 8:30 p.m. 2015

Anchored by a wide-ranging stylistic influences, San Francisco’s Thee Oh Sees have been maintaining firm footing on the gas pedal of psychedelia for years now. Rooted in punk, their music reminds listeners that all forward motion is progress and that there are always new sounds to discover around each verse. Back in May, the band released Mutilator Defeated at Last, their ninth album as Thee Oh Sees, and their 14th studio album overall. It’s a fast-moving sea of styles, frantic and engaging. Opener “Web,” like many songs here, hangs on Timothy Hellman’s groovy bass line, dodging manic blows from vocalist and guitarist John Dwyer. The band is touring with two drummers this year -- Ryan Moutinho and Dan Rincon -- which will keep that in-studio intensity high onstage. (Sandy)
