Why not check out five indie bands that are putting the rock back into Roc City? The third annual West Fest is a two-day concert organized by Dusty West, lead singer of grunge outfit Anchorage, Nebraska and impresario of Eat Here Records. West calls the eponymously titled event, "the thing he works on the hardest every year." Day 1 includes guitar-and-drum duo Routine Involvements. The pair's shows are gritty and syncopated. There I Say is Lightening is profound, wrapped in depth and honed by plenty of gigs. Envious Disguise (pictured) is a young band that is fresh off a tour. Three-piece A Dead Love Society takes its cues from Muse. While The Fevertones began as punk but has veered towards street-performer Americana.

West Fest will be held on Friday, August 23, 9 p.m. at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Ave. $5-$6.
