OVVN's "b l o vv n" Video: Manginas, Bloody Gums, and Horse Heads (NSFW)

Well, here's a hell of a way to start the week. Meet OVVN, a heavy new band with members from Oakland and Guerneville who've only played three shows but have already mastered the art of the holy-shit-what-am-I-watching video. Shot in a creepy dark house in Richmond, "b l o vv n" serves up a Kubrick vs. Von Trier smorgasbord of naked asses, bleeding mouths, and the good ol' mangina tuck-and-tape with a soundtrack rivaling Godheadsilo in its prime. Watch, if you dare:

Expect OVVN's four-song debut cassette soon, and in the meantime, the band (Ethan Jayne, Max Kaufman, Guy Henry and Connor Alfaro) is steadily playing house parties around the Bay Area. On the way home after their cramped, sweaty show in a garage last night, I rode past a palm reader, a prostitute, and a head shop -- which, come to think of it, are the very things you may need to consult while recovering from the three minutes above.

More ways to get ovvned, blovvn and pvvned right on over here.

The Monday night concert featured a rare first set opener of “Walfredo” with the band members switching instruments for the song. The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd. With Game 6 being tonight, partying Phish fans will join Giants fans in Civic Center Plaza where there will be a World Series viewing party on a large screen set up by the City.
