GARAGE ROCK | Absolutes 

Rochester's The Absolutes keep this town's garage-rock tradition alive with killer stomp and rave. With a dash more pop than The Sonics and a less live mayhem than The Chesterfield Kings, this young band has mastered the sound's relentless throb and wail. This is music to be experienced live to begin with, and the Absolutes are absolutely one of the best at producing it. Though I love the band's original tunes, I'd love to hear them do The Invictas' hit "The Hump." Wouldn't you? Sports and Green Dreams will be shakin the shack as well.

Absolutes play Friday, February 15, 9 p.m. at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Ave. $7-$9.
