This will be this Rochester band's Lovin' Cup debut. Self-described as alternative/folk/jazz, this seven-piece adds an element of darkness to its rather dense textures and lighthearted irony. It's kind of a cross between Primus and 10,000 Maniacs. Polyrhythmic and loads of fun.
Kneptune performs with Upward Groove Saturday, May 18, 9 p.m. at Lovin' Cup, 300 Park Point. $3-$5. lovincup.com.
