INDIE SOUL | The Tontons 

It's been a steady rise for Houston-based indie smooth operators The Tontons. With lots of shimmer and groove — and sultry vocals from singer Asli Omar — The Tontons mix up soulful R&B with shifting, swirling indie psychedelic rock. The band just released its second full-length album, "Make Out King and Other Stories of Love," and is starting to get some hard-earned national attention.

The Tontons with The Straw House Uncertainty, Faux Leather Jacket, and Jenna Giuliani performs Tuesday, September 23, at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue. 9 p.m. $7-$9. Bugjar.com; thetontons.com.

    Summer starts June 21, so with beautiful weather inevitable during the next few months, there's no reason to stay home. We say it every year, but it's always true: Western New York comes alive during the summer months.
