As I wrote in the review of Ty Segall’s set, this show was one of the most fun nights of the year. DBA has always been a venue with a kinetic energy, but on a night when two bands who these days play much larger venues came in for a special secret show, the atmosphere was electric. Thee Oh Sees are a great live band — leader John Dwyer is indefatigable, and on this night the band played an extended set. From the very outset opening with “The Dream”, the band never really came up for air as they delivered garage-rock rave ups one after another. Seemingly at the end of their show, the crowd wouldn’t let them leave the stage and Thee Oh Sees played two more songs, including an extended jam on “Destroyed Fortress” that veered back into the melody of “Dead Energy” before closing at more than ten minutes. We don’t expect to see Thee Oh Sees at a venue the size of DBA again, but this show certainly left a lasting memory.

I recorded this show in the same manner as the Ty Segall set and the sound is excellent. Enjoy!
