First, imagine the songs a supergroup with John Lennon, The Kinks and some medieval bard might make. Now throw in some Flaming Lips bass and Neil Young grunge in the mix and you've got yourselves a big brew of Thee Oh Sees. Hailing from beautiful San Francisco, these guys have been writing some pretty tasty tunes for the better part of 15 years, and have been putting out at least one impressive album a year, sometimes two.

Their latest endeavor, “Floating Coffin,” is really a psychedelic gem. Some memorable tracks are “Toe Cutter-Thumb Blaster” and “Minotaur,” the latter being a personal favorite.

Check them out Tuesday along with Minneapolis' The Blind Shake and OBN III, from Austin, Texas, at The Wooly, starting at 8 p.m.

It's Fest weekend, so remember that this town gets a little crowded. With that in mind, go enjoy pop-punk legends ALL, Bouncing Souls, Tim Kasher of Cursive and Goodlife fame, Dead Milkmen, Ceremony and locals Ex-Boogeymen, The Adult Boys Thunderband, Post Teens and seriously hundreds more. The fun begins tonight and lasts through the weekend. Have a good time and be safe.
