Toronto-based band The Sadies has been on the scene for almost two decades, and its music has gone through several phases throughout those years. The band itself believes that it has "developed, even perfected, a style of music that is uniquely [its] own" — made apparent through ever-changing influences and frequent experimentation within varied genres. The Sadies will release a new album, "Internal Sounds," on October 1, with music that is simultaneously influenced by wide-ranging genres such as the blues, bluegrass, and country. With a strong knack for experimentation and absolutely no fear of change, The Sadies has created staying power within the fickle, and always developing, music scene.
The Sadies will perform with The Pickpockets and Bogs Visionary Orchestra Saturday, September 28, 8 p.m., at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Ave. $15. Bugjar.com.
