See Thee Oh Sees' Frontman John Dwyer's Photo Show at the Rite Spot Starting Tomorrow

What's it like to see the world through the eyes of a touring musician? Probably largely the same as seeing the world through the eyes of a touring non-musician, unless we're talking about Stevie Wonder or something, but why would you even say such a thing? Too soon. 

For almost two months beginning tomorrow at the Rite Spot on Folsom, you can see a show of photos taken by the trusty Holga of John Dwyer, frontman of Thee Oh Sees (as well as the late Pink and Brown, as well as Coachwhips, who have a great Myspace URL, etc.). You are intrigued, are you not? Here's a Facebook invitation about it. 

Said invite doesn't offer much in the way of appetite-whetters, but it does promise a peek into "this highly observant man's view of life on the road and at home in the Bay Area." Here's hoping it'll be something like this video, only in still-photograph format and with more cat photos.

Things will kick off with an opening reception tomorrow from 5 to 8 p.m., and the show will remain up until June 11. And don't you think it's high time you paid a visit to the Rite Spot anyway?

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
