Whether you're running out a fly ball, executing an elegant bicycle kick, or swinging to the sounds of this Rochester-based band, Sports make you sweat. This quirky quintet has been pumping out three-and-a-half minute, high-energy dance anthems since its inspired inception in 2010. These precise pop compositions are tied together with a bit of mid-60's soul and a pinch of New Wave punk that came a decade later. In just a few short years, the group has released its own album, supported its own tour, and, most impressively, refined an undeniably, original "indie" sound. Mikaela Davis and Josh Netsky also perform.
Sports plays Saturday, December 22, 9 p.m. at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Ave. $7-$9. 454-2966, bugjar.com.
