Weekend Warrior, September 8 - 10

Weekend Warrior, September 8 - 10

Toward the tail end of last month, Oh Sees released their new album Orc (Castle Face Records). Stretching into a spacey psych-garage paradigm, the band shreds through the ether, while casting strange scenarios of odd artistic visions, projecting an idiosyncratic ideal. Tonight, they’ll be supported at The Troc by the down and dirty pairing of garage-rock locals The Whips and The Tough Shits. The Whips’ slithering, slack/surf-inflected songs instantly catch one on an enthusiastic hook-driven, groove-shaking journey. Add the instantly enthusiastic, get-down energy of The Whips, and let the weekend wind down commence. – Michael Colavita
