The Blind Shake: Show Preview

Thee Oh Sees main man John Dwyer has put together what is sure to be one of the sweatiest, most beer-soaked package tours to storm across the country this fall. Besides the beloved S.F. garage-psych maestros and Austin punks the OBN III's, fans will be treated to the frenzied assault of Minneapolis trio the Blind Shake. For the past decade, the group has refined its powerful surf-tinged squall on a string of acclaimed albums as well as a pair of collaborative efforts with psych-noise pioneer Michael Yonkers. Ax-wielding Blaha brothers Mike (on baritone guitar) and Jim (on standard six-string) unleash riffs that snarl and growl like a pair of rabid pitbulls in heat over San Jose-raised drummer Dave Roper's punishing backbeats. The Blind Shake will play songs from its new Castle Face Records release Key to a False Door during the tour's three-night residency at The Chapel.
