Drippers! has become a local legend over the last few years, with a lineup that evolves as much as its music does. The band's sound is psychedelic, swampy, and full of hooks that make you feel like you are suspended in a gravity deprivation chamber. Not many bands can hang on a riff as long as these guys do, but they do it with a focused intensity that lets it breathe and grow. Just when you think Drippers! is peaking, the band kicks it in to overdrive and elevate you further. As much atmospheric as punk, they hold a unique place in Rochester's scene.
Drippers! play with RAT FIST!, Randy Randall of No Age, and Sean McGuinness of Pissed Jeans on Tuesday, July 24, at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue. 9 p.m. $8-$10. Bugjar.com.
