MUSIC: Baltimore duo Wye Oak takes its moniker from the honorary state tree of Maryland, a 460-year-old white oak that was destroyed by a thunderstorm in 2002. The pair's melodic noise pop might not share their namesake's longevity, but the duo emulates its constant growth with each subsequent release. Its most recent album, last year's "Civilian," found the duo at its most urgent and accessible, with the title track being used on the soundtracks to multiple television shows and movies. Brooklyn band Callers, as well as Rochester's own Archimedes, open this 8 p.m. at the Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.). Tickets cost $10-$12. 454-2966, bugjar.com for info.
