“The Dream” (Live In San Francisco) (Video)

    Fader’s Step into the Black series recently caught the manic energy of Thee Oh Sees on camera, the results of which can be seen in the clip below. This is a band that really needs to be seen live—despite the acclaim heaped on their albums, they’ve never really managed to capture the frantic nature of their shows on wax. This clip demonstrates why, with John Dwyer leading his band through a full-on assault on “The Dream” that just feels utterly life affirming. Head over here to download the performance. [via Fader]
