Music: Thee Oh Sees Premiere "The Lens" Video



03/21/14 - More From The Publicist: Our lad John P. Dwyer has been lancing eardrums with Thee Oh Sees in an ever escalating flurry of records for the past 6 years. Since the release of "The Master's Bedroom Is Worth Spending A Night In" announced a new loud era and excepting a few momentary detours into home-baked territory ("Dog Poison" and "Castlemania" for example), JPD and company have pummeled a bit harder each time out, cemented their reputation as a live force to be reckoned with, and have left legions sweaty and bruised in the process. Late last year, after years of relentlessly touring the world, the word got out…Dwyer's moving to LA (fear not, still California!) and Thee Oh Sees are taking a much needed hiatus with a shifting of gears ahead and a new album on the way. This is that album.

Drop was recorded in a banana ripening warehouse (no joke) with hair-farming studio warlock Chris Woodhouse playing drums and graced with the presence of talented gurus Mikal Cronin, Greer McGettrick, and Casafis adding horns and vocals. The result pushes the familiar polarities of the group farther outward than ever before…opener "Penetrating Eye" might be the heaviest Oh Sees song yet, "Transparent World" and "Put Some Reverb On My Brother" foam with seasick fuzz, and yet the ballads, like the harpsichorded "King's Nose" and the lush and stately closer "The Lens", extend their oeuvre into mellotronic, far-out pop with delicacy and grace. This schizophrenia heralds the man and the band into an unseen future in classic Dwyer fashion - with restless energy harnessed into exquisitely crafted jams, with an emphasis on the pensive and the paranoid in turns. Featuring artwork by Jonny Negron.

Music: BOSTON “Heaven on Earth Tour” with Special Guest CHEAP TRICK Coming To Bangor, Maine


boston maine


03/20/14 - Bangor, ME -- Following the successful release of their latest album, "Life, Love & Hope", T om Scholz' band BOSTON along with Special Guest CHEAP TRICK will embark on the highly anticipated “Heaven On Earth” summer tour this June, making a stop in Bangor, Maine at the Darling’s Waterfront Pavilion on July, 2nd as part of the Machias Savings Bank Concert Series. Tickets will go on sale to the general public this Friday, March 21st at 10:00am. Tickets are available via waterfrontconcerts.com and all Ticketmaster Outlets.

Always a huge crowd pleaser with their high-energy stage show, out-of-this-world sound, and remarkable musicianship and singing, BOSTON will feature the personnel and music from their highly acclaimed 2012 tour with some exciting additions. The band prides itself on performing a totally live show without the use of prerecorded music or technical enhancements, delivering the exceptional sound that is faithful to their studio recordings.

BOSTON burst onto the music scene with their eponymous best-selling debut album in 1976, and never looked back. With over 17 million copies sold, Boston generated hits such as "More Than a Feeling," "Peace of Mind," and "Smokin'," rock staples that are still in heavy rotation today. Their second effort, Don't Look Back was another chart-topper that confirmed their place in rock history, followed by Third Stage, which hit #1 on the charts, with the top single of 1986, "Amanda." With over 31 million albums sold to date, their music has stood the test of time, as evidenced by live BOSTON audiences that span generations.

Last December, BOSTON released their newest studio album, Life, Love & Hope on Frontiers Records. More than a decade in the making, Life, Love & Hope features 11 tracks embodying the classic and beloved BOSTON sound, as well as the latest in the evolution of Tom Scholz' musical artistry. Diverse yet cohesive, this long-awaited album has something for everyone and will fulfill the expectations of its long time fans, while exposing a new generation to one of rock 'n' roll’s great acts.

CHEAP TRICK may be one of the most covered bands of all time. Since the 70s they’ve been blending elements of pop, punk and even metal in a way that is instantly catchy and recognizable. With timeless classics such as “I Want You to Want Me,” “Surrender,” and “The Flame,” CHEAP TRICK are a musical institution. Anyone familiar with Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report will note that CHEAP TRICK wrote and performed the theme song.

With more than 5,000 performances, 20 million records sold, 29 movie soundtracks and 40 gold and platinum recording awards, the band was honored in October 2007 by the Chicago Chapter of NARAS (National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences) for their contributions to the music industry. CHEAP TRICK were featured in the John Varvatos Spring 2008 ad campaign.

The band has most recently performed their Dream Police album in its entirety along with an orchestra in select cities across the US. This innovative show also includes many other songs from the band’s extensive catalog, garnering them critical acclaim after performances in venues such as the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles.

Their most current release, The Latest, (released on CD, vinyl and 8-track) has garnered glowing reviews worldwide and continues Cheap Trick’s reign as power-pop progenitors as they continue their legacy of over 35 years in the music industry.

General Public ticket sale begins FRIDAY, MARCH 21st AT 10:00AM

Tickets prices range from $21.75 to $81.75 Reserved Seating & General Admission - PLUS ANY APPLICABLE FEES DEPENDING ON PURCHASE OUTLET - Tickets available via waterfrontconcerts.com, all Ticketmaster outlets, charge-by-phone at 1-800-745-3000 or locally at Mark’s Music in Brewer.
