Oh Sees playing secret show this Friday? [+mp3]

When singer/enchantress Brigid Dawson isn’t touring non-stop with Thee Oh Sees, she makes art. This Friday, you can see some of her work on display at Needles & Pens in the Mission, along with a music performance from a “special guest.”

Then again, I wouldn’t want to play at my fucking art show so really, who knows?

mp3: Big Drag – “Lost Your Mind”

Here’s a hazy, psychedelic jam sent to us by Big Drag, who – if not already – should start hearing comparisons to Brian Jonestown Massacre. Big Drag welcomes the addition of Matthew Melton of Bare Wires/Warm Soda on bass guitar tomorrow at Hemlock Tavern with  Sir Lord Von Raven and The Hussy. RSVP here.
