PUSHER MEN: The Seeds, known for their AM radio hit "Pushin' Too Hard," come to The Ritz.

Some will remember The Seeds as the one-hit AM radio wonders responsible for “Pushin’ Too Hard,” a 1966 pop song about a girl who needs to back off. The tune is thick with the political anxieties of the time. One way to describe The Seeds is as a quartet that sounds like a quintet. Like the legendary Ray Manzarek, keyboardist Daryl Hooper held down the bass end of the bass-guitar-free band on his distorted electric Wurlitzer. Recently the subject of their own documentary, this cult favorite psych garage outfit comes to San Jose with LSD and the Search for God.
