Aaron Gillespie was the last remaining original member of progressive thrash metal band Underoath. Reportedly, the music was getting increasingly too heavy for his tastes. He left the group in 2006 and started working on a side project called the Almost. It was not really a band yet, though; he had to form the band later on. The Almost now has recorded several albums and performed fast and furious pop music at the Studio at Webster Hall tonight. The set was cut short because the hall had to be cleared out for another event.
