PERCUSSION | TIGUE

Fresh off the release of its debut album, "Peaks," on indie classical label New Amsterdam Records, the innovative Brooklyn-based percussion trio TIGUE makes its way to the Bug Jar for a homecoming of sorts. All Eastman School of Music alumni, Matt Evans, Amy Garapic, and Carson Moody bring an unforced cool to the genre of chamber music — while genre labels don't easily stick, elements of rock, electronic pop, ambient, and classical are all in the mix with a dash of the avant-garde. A smorgasbord of percussion instruments populate the stage of a TIGUE concert: drum set, vibraphone, bongos, toms, auxiliary odds-and-ends, and even beer bottles are all part of the sonic landscape. The result is vivid, even danceable music that is as infectious as it is complex. The Rochester band Drippers will play in support, with multiple sets from DJ Creath between bands.

TIGUE performs on Sunday, November 29, at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue. 9 p.m. $6-$8. bugjar.com; tiguemusic.com.
