Pop/Rock | Little Big League 

Little Big League, based in Philadelphia, makes music that recalls the pop-punk sound of the 90's and early 2000's, when the genre was heavily influenced by the burgeoning indie-rock scene. Reminiscent of artists like Tegan and Sara and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, the band combines a pop-punk-inspired love of melody and structure with hazy, distorted instrumentation and a relaxed tempo. The result is something familiar, yet not overly familiar. The band's music serves as a revival of the indie-rock that defined the genre some 10 years ago: a revival that feels fresh, as it contrasts greatly with the majority of the music in both the indie-rock and post-punk scenes today.

Little Big League performs with Laura Stevenson and The Cans on Wednesday, November 20, 9 p.m. at The Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Ave. $10-$12. bugjar.com.
