The following description was submitted by the event organizer.

A raw, noisy, over-the-top rock & roll explosion, Osees is one of the many incarnations of John Dwyer's long-running garage-punk project. Rooted in his ripsaw guitar sound, shouted vocals, and aggressive performance style, Osees was a newer, more streamlined handle for Dwyer's group after being known as Thee Oh Sees (or just Oh Sees) since 2006. Fractured psychedelic pop, confident garage rock revivalism, crushing proto-metal, dark psychedelia, and trippy prog are some of the ingredients that give their music its form and flavor. 2015's Mutilator Defeated at Last was the album where the Oh Sees' many ingredients most effectively came together before they reinvented themselves as Osees with 2020's Protean Threat, an effort that took their diverse musical obsessions and packed them into faster, louder, and (relatively) shorter sounds. Dwyer and co.'s attack got even deeper into punk while allowing their experimental side to roam free with 2022's A Foul Form.
