This past Monday I had a chance to say a quick hello to Keith Morris and check out a live performance from his new band OFF! when they played the Middle East Downstairs. The show was ragingly excellent with a constantly moving pit and stage diving, but zero fights. Openers Trash Talk and Cerebral Ballzy were both great as well with hyperactive sounds that reminded me of 85/86 era American hardcore without being derivative.
Along with Keith Morris the ranks of OFF! are made up of: Steven McDonald - bass, Dimitri Coats - guitar and Mario Rubalcaba - drums. The footage below is a performance from October 2010 on spinner.com.
