ROCK | The Caulfield Cult


Singapore-based band The Caulfield Cult is a hard-working bunch. Last year, the emo-punk quartet performed in almost two-dozen countries and released a couple of records that are tough and melodic in all the right places. I'm digging "Everyone But Me," a number that rocks out with snot pounding riffs. Then there's the breakneck energy of "White Pills.," which makes me want to crowd surf in my living room. Lead singer Nick Prasat Kumar named his band after Holden Caulfield, the protagonist in "The Catcher in the Rye." Anytime a band makes a literary reference like that and adds "Cult" at the end, it probably isn't a bad sign.

The Caulfield Cult performs on Tuesday, May 19, at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue. 9 p.m. $7-$9.;
