3. Musical guest Oh is FANTASTIC. Not only is she a delight to look at, but her music is hauntingly charming. OH is currently finishing up a demo and going on a short tour to New York and Europe. Her music has been described as “pop rocks in slow motion”, a description we like very much. She plays a drum machine, a couple toy keyboards and sings.
