California garage rockers, Thee Oh Sees, have stretched the boundaries of rock to its limits for two decades now and remain just as entertainingly chaotic as ever. Under one moniker or another, the band has experimented in everything from classic psychedelia to punk rock and artsy alternative. Considered one of the cornerstone bands of the post-millennium garage/psych resurgence, “Thee Oh Sees represent a purposefully chaotic fusion of guitar and synth noise, strong and elemental melodies, and addled but focused attacks.” After enduring a brief transitional period and a minor name change to just Oh Sees now, the band released their 19th full-length album, Orc, in August of 2017. As fans have come to expect from Oh Sees, Orc pushes the limits of conceptual rock music and bridges new terrain beyond the psychedelic bazaar. Currently touring in support of the new album, Oh Sees brought their experimental psychedelia to Austin’s Hotel Vegas for a Labor Day feast. Photographer Jon Roberts caught some of the action from the crowd.
