Since I included More Than Any Other Day in a list of albums we might have overlooked earlier this year, my love for Canadian quartet Ought’s debut album has grown considerably. The passionate and artful post-punk effort is another in a long line of fine records to emerge from the independent scene in Montreal over the last decade and a half, and indeed it has seen its release via Constellation Records, the independent label at the heart of that city’s emergence.

More Than Any Other Day has turned the spotlight on the band to the point where Ought has been touring incessantly since its release, and now the group is hitting the West Coast for the first time for a string of dates that began in Vancouver last night. That run will bring them to Los Angeles a week from today (October 7th) for a headline show at the Center for the Arts in Eagle Rock.

Tickets for that show are still available. If you haven’t checked out the excellent Eagle Rock venue before, it’s one of LA’s best venues for smaller shows. And if you still need convincing, check out the video for “The Weather Song” below for a taste of what may be in store.
