SXSW 2009: Thee Oh Sees Thrill Austin

John Dwyer is part stand-up comedian, full-time musician (Coachwhips, OCS, several other bands, including last night's Thee Oh Sees) and quintessential entertainer. Guitar strapped high on his chest, gray-brown hair flopping about, eyes maddeningly wide, mic often buried deep in his mouth, Dwyer led the former Paste Band of the Week through a thrilling and frantic set at Emo's Jr. Like an ADHD kid missing his meds, Dwyer seemed unable to stop exuding sweat and words while trading off within an arsenal of supremely badass guitars. Do not miss Thee Oh Sees if they come to your town.
