sid finch - the artist(s) once known in new york circles as "the trousers" - plays a mix of tom obrien's lyric-rich singer-songwriter compositions and riff-driven rock'n'roll. The acoustic shows are devoted to telling stories that owe something in perspective and tone to the Dylan of Blood on the Track and, to some extent, Love and Theft; while the electric shows display the genre-hopping (and musical influence) of a Some Girls-era Rolling Stones.
sid finch returned to performing after a hiatus while Tom was dedicated to soundtrack composing (scores for the indy feature, Second Best, which debuted at the Sundance Film Festival and Jersey Christmas). Tom has just finished recording a solo record, Somewhere in California, the long awaited follow-up to his Closed for Renovations EP, set for release later this year).
sid finch has played in and around Los Angeles and New York City (often as "the trousers") in full band complement or solo-acoustic (as tom o'brien shows) at such clubs as the Mercury Lounge, Arlene Grocery, Rockwood Music Hall, the Living Room, Parkside Lounge, the Knitting Factory, CB's 313 Gallery, the Stephen Talkhouse, the Whisky-a-Go-Go, the Hotel Cafe, Molly Malones, the Cat Club, Monroe's, and Ghengis Cohen.
sid finch is: Tom OBrien (vocals/guitar/keys), Jared Egloswky (bass), Cameron Lloyd (drums), John Kurtz (guitar) - and, on occasion, Nick Weber (keys), Simon Shapiro (drums), Pete Huyck (guitar), Charles Goodan (keys) and Dan Riley (bass).
