Pop/Rock | Young Galaxy 

Early in 2013, Canadian quintet Young Galaxy released its fourth album, "Ultramarine," one which ultimately landed itself high on the short list of Polaris Prize nominees announced midyear. Featured on the album is song of the year candidate "Pretty Boy," an astounding opening track and perfect introduction to the band's superlative electro-pop. Front woman Catherine McCandless is a worthy arbiter of the band's clear talent, and confident enough in her vocals to let the music step forward and carry much of the weight at times. With tropical rhythms and bold grooves, expect great things here in town, as well as in the future. 

Young Galaxy performs with Mister Lies and Hawker M. James Sunday, November 10, 8 p.m., at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Ave., $8-$12, bugjar.com.

    Rochester has its fair share of new breweries and brewpubs, but there's no shortage of beer options in our surrounding areas. When getting out of town this summer, stop for a pint at these breweries.
