ROCK | Split Squad


All I have to do is list the borderline royal pedigree in this outfit, right? I mean, c'mon there's Clem Burke (Blondie and the Empty Hearts with Rochester's Andy Babiuk), Keith Streng (Fleshtones), Eddie Munoz (Plimsouls), and Josh Kantor (The Baseball Project). The band's 2013 "Now Hear This" was produced by Young Fresh Fellow Scott McCaughey. This is kind of a who's who in jangly pop-rock and one of those all-star collabs that actually works. (Do you hear me Willie and the Poor Boys?)

Split Squad plays Saturday, August 2, at Abilene Bar and Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way. 9:30 p.m. $10.;
