Thee Oh Sees/New Planet Trampoline/Ma Holos 

When: Fri., Nov. 18, 9 p.m. 2016
Price: $17
Drop a nickel in the slot and the robot band jerks to life, creaking out lo-fi garage-folk tunes with a sinister air. Such is the early work of San Francisco-based Thee Oh Sees, who (at that time) sounded more like an off-kilter group of banjo-plucking toothless Joes than a cornerstone of the 21st century garage rock revival. Now known for raucous rock shows where mosh pits shake floors, the band still delivers bits of that folky drawl. Originally referred to as OCS, which stood for Orinoka Crash Suite, or Orange County Sound, or whatever other acronym singer-guitarist John Dwyer dreamt up that day, the group released its first album as Thee Oh Sees in 2006. Ever since, the band has put out at least one album per year and sometimes two for a total of 15 releases to date. This year is no exception with A Weird Exits dropping in August and An Odd Entrances poised for release on the day of the band’s Cleveland appearance. Thee Oh Sees’ 2015 show at the Beachland sold out, so don’t hold onto that nickel for too long. (Bethany Kaufman)
