After decades of presenting some of the most quirky and wonderful concerts in Rochester, there are several CD's titled "Live at the Bop Shop." The first album to bear that name was released by Nu Band, an avant-garde group about to make its fourth appearance at the record store. If you are a fan of top instrumentalists steeped in group improvisation, Nu Band is for you.

Nu Band plays Sunday, January 14, at Bop Shop Records, 1460 Monroe Avenue. 8 p.m. $20 general; $10 students. 271-3354; bopshop.com.
