ROCK | Televisionaries


With a blend of psychedelic surf tone and gritty punk rock, Televisionaries are a band that makes you want to dance. Instead of chunking on chords, entire songs are flat-picked melodies that are infectious and moving. It's a classic sound on the surface, hailing images of beach parties circa 1960. But just when you think you know what's coming next, the band turns it up and rocks your face. Though only a trio, Televisionaries shows become huge, as the audience becomes the gyrating fourth member.

The Lobby Presents: Bored on the Fourth of July with Harmonica Lewinski, Televisionaries, Buffalo Sex Change, and Paxtor. Friday, July 4, at Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue. 8 p.m. $8.
