In their two decades in show business, Oh Sees have gone through numerous incarnations and lineup changes, and leader John Dwyer (Coachwhips) and his San Francisco band have performed under just as many variations of the name (Thee Oh Sees, Orinoka Crash Suite, OCS, Orange County Sound, The Ohsees). The group’s latest album, Orc, is a fittingly jagged and unpredictably eclectic barrage, moving from the throttling glitter-punk intensity of “The Static God” and new-wave synth flashes of “Nite Expo” to the guttural metallic grumbling of “Animated Violence” and the spacey, Brian Eno–style post-punk epic “Keys to the Castle.” And that’s just the first four songs. Dwyer changes his vocal identity throughout, but every track is spiked with his florid bolts of guitar. He’ll likely mute or transmute some of that energy this weekend for what’s being billed as a “mellow, sit-down” set. Plus, Ty Segall and Shannon Lay. Also Saturday, Dec. 16.
