ALT- FOLK | Doc Baker's Traveling Musicological Extravaganza

While sitting here mainlining Rochester's Doc Baker's Traveling Musicological Extravaganza through my headphones, it came to me: we all go bananas (at least I do) when we hear something without the too-often used fidelity and studio polish. Some things need to be raw — cleaning them up just takes away the personality and char. Doc Baker's Traveling Musicological Extravaganza is raw, yet well-done, indie-folk with a minor-keyed pall. You can hear all the parts that mash together, effortlessly making for the band's deliciously lopsided groove and mid-tempo drive. Rough, rockin', compelling, and plenty cool.

Doc Baker's Traveling Musicological Extravaganza plays with Grayak and Filthy Gorgeous on Sunday, February 7, at Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue. 9 p.m. $6-$8. bugjar.com; dbtme.bandcamp.com.
