As leader of the San Francisco-founded, L.A.-based garage-punk/neo-psych band Oh Sees, John Dwyer has amassed a sizable and mostly consistent catalog, releasing 19 LPs since 2006. The past year or so bore witness to singer/guitarist Dwyer at the height of his mind-bending powers, with the appearance of two of Oh Sees’ best albums, Smote Reverser and Face Stabber. These latest records draw heavily from prog rock and experimental electronic music, and they benefit in no small part from contributions by keyboardist Tomas Dolas. Oh Sees’ show at the Teragram last Halloween was absolutely electric, and we expect this year’s set to be another thrill ride.

Oh Sees play with Prettiest Eyes and Dynasty Handbag at 9 p.m. on Thursday, October 31 at the Teragram Ballroom.
