My introduction to this band, that has apparently been playing shows in and around Houston for quite some time, was the night before they were set to perform a gig downstairs at Fitzgerald’s
a few nights ago. When a friend was telling me about them, I immediately heard their name as The OC’s, which gave me an instant negative connotation purely based on the immensely popular mid-2000’s serial-drama The OC. Well, upon further investigation later in the night when I returned home, I found out that wasn’t their name at all, and they were actually called Thee Oh Sees
. After a few listens, I immediately learned that their brand of music would’ve been the type to never have been featured on the previously mentioned show. With a renewed opinion about the band, and an arsenal of recommendations from friends who seem to have a pretty good grasp on what’s going on in the music world, I strolled into Fitz with my camera just in time to catch the beginning of Thee Oh Sees set.
