Weekly Wooot -- Thee Oh Sees

Epicsauce has teamed up with the excellent San Francisco blog SFist -- each week we provide SFist readers with a preview of the upcoming week in music.

Another great week in live music with Tim and Eric's Pusswhip Gangbang performing all the hits at Mezzanine Thursday, Oakland's drum and synth heavy experimental four-piece Religious Girls with Anticon's Jel at The American Steel Building Friday and local stripped down noise-pop duo Tartufi at El Rio Saturday.

Our pick for this week is San Francisco's own Thee Oh Sees at Eagle Tavern Thursday. The notoriously busy (2009 saw two full length albums, a collection of demos and a plethora of singles from the band) quartet's gritty blend of psychedelic garage-rock stands as some of the area's best, helping to shape and define that unique sound that San Francisco is gradually becoming best known for. It is an absolutely stacked lineup, with the previously profiled Ty Segall and Sacramento's Mayyors and Ganglians rounding out the bill -- this one is not to be missed.

Plenty of other options this week, including local Americana act Buxter Hoot'n at Bottom of the Hill Wednesday, danceable favorites Boyz IV Men at The Lab Thursday and Two Gallant's drummer Tyson Vogel's new project Devotionals at the Make Out Room Sunday -- be sure to consult the full list.
