INDIE ROCK | Pale Lungs 

This Saturday at the Bug Jar is practically a holiday: it's Tim Avery's birthday show. The Rochester impresario will be celebrating in style with a full lineup featuring touring acts Charmer and Pale Lungs as well as local bands California Cousins and Barbarossa. For those of us who listened to emo growing up, Pale Lungs in particular offers up some atmospheric rock replete with sparkling, reverb-laden guitar melodies and expressive, vulnerable vocals that never devolve into the high-pitched whining that is the quintessential emo cliché. Pale Lungs will be playing in support of its new, four-song EP, "Strawberry."

Pale Lungs plays Saturday, August 5, at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue. 9 p.m. $7. 454-2966;;
