GARAGE ROCK | Jan the Actress 

Jan the Actress may just be a trio, but its sound is fully immersive.  With Eric Witkowski on guitar and vocals, Karrah Teague on vocals, Darren DeWispelaere on drums, and Frank Ashcraft on bass, the trio paints an garage rock picture that becomes somewhat meditative. Jan the Actress' first demos were released in February 2017, and its latest single, "Functioneer and His Appendages," was released that May. There is a general embrace of confusion and delirium, which is reflected in the lyrics, melodies, and in the visual aesthetic. Jan the Actress blends electronic textures with dreamy vocals, revealing an ethereal sonic landscape that offers introspective transcendence for any listener.

Jan the Actress performs with Toward Space and Buffalo Sex Change on Thursday, March 8, at Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue. 9 p.m. $10. bugjar.com; jantheactress.bandcamp.com.

EDITOR'S NOTE: This article has been updated to include vocalist Karrah Teague to the band's lineup.
