Disconfirmed Expectancy

I've seen Cult of Youth perform twice, both times opening for Zola Jesus, and they wowed me both times. The music wasn't incredible, but their absolutely raw energy more than made up for it. Unfortunately, it doesn't carry over very well on the album or this video, for that matter. Sean Ragon, the lead singer and acoustic guitarist, blasts every ounce of feeling (and sweat) out of his body and exhausts himself, in the best way possible, by set's end. If you ever get a chance to see them, go.
