They delivered their unique take on post-rock / post-punk in a solid set that impressed me. The audience on hand were right into it as well. The beats and riffs are relentless while the lyrics and vocal delivery veer from stream-of-consciousness to catchy. Their sound is at once familiar with ambitious influences while having a unique sonic signature.
With this performance, Ought has successfully moved from the "bands to see" list to the "bands to see again" list. Great performance.
