Ought, Violette Ultraviolet

When: Wed., June 18, 8:30 p.m. 2014

Ought formed in Montréal as a group of American expats — plus one Aussie — seeking clarity in the harshness of Canadian winter and, of course, cheaper college tuition. The band’s debut full-length on acclaimed Canadian label Constellation Records, More Than Any Other Day, is a startling work of art-punk that examines themes of isolation and dislocation that are undoubtedly the result of being strangers in a strange land. It is bracing and fearless yet oddly accessible, even in the midst of such thematic uncertainty and sonic anarchy. Ought play the Monkey House in Winooski on Wednesday, June 18, with locals Violette Ultraviolet.

Price: $7/9/12/14. 18+
