L-R: Travis Abbott, Riley Anne Johnson, Brent Joel and Nik Kososik of Western Mystics.

Crowds started building sooner than usual for day one of the fifth annual Treefort Music Fest. When local post-rock band Western Mystics took the stage at Neurolux on March 23, the group played to a packed room.

The relatively young band—it formed in December 2014 as Dos Ojo Terceros—delivered a set that deserved such a large audience.

Travis Abbott and Nik Kososik's weaving baritone guitars, Riley Anne Johnson's spooky keyboard and Brent Joel's forceful drumming shifted between thunderously somber, YOB-like dirges and soothing, dreamy interludes.
