POP | Bastille 

To say Bastille's single, "Pompeii," really blew up is an understatement — it was everywhere: on the radio, commercials, and I think I heard a street busker play it on an accordion during the summer. It was a precursor for the British pop band's debut album, "Bad Blood," which debuted at number one on the UK albums chart, and number 11 on the Billboard 200. Not bad for a band that's only previous releases were a free, two-part mixtape, and two short EPs.

Bastille will perform Friday, October 24, at the Main Street Armory, 900 East Main Street. 8 p.m. $35. Mainstreetarmory.com; bastillebastille.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.
