Thee Oh Sees headline tonight in another benefit show for gentrification-threatened downtown venue the Smell. The psychedelic band have gone through a series of changes since starting 20 years ago in San Francisco, but they remain just as perennially engrossing thanks to their bandleader, singer-guitarist John Dwyer, who also heads the group’s label, Castle Face Records. On Thee Oh Sees’ latest full-length disc, An Odd Entrances, Dwyer presides over a mesmerizing blend of haunted chanting and propulsive grooves. The group might have psychedelic tendencies, but Dwyer tends to use his guitar to make otherworldly vibrations that sound more modern than retro. “Jammed Exit” is, for example, an almost jazzy odyssey and collage of weirdly mutating sounds, with its febrile flute and eerie keyboards.
