Pop/Rock | Restorations 

Maybe it's the effortlessly ragged vocals, but I've got a suspicion that Philadelphia's Restorations is influenced by The Replacements. The pop intensity and epic attack in the face of rock simplicity doesn't hurt either. The band has gentle spots but for the most part rocks relentless and true — two things I expect out of listening experience. Though Restorations is forward thinking and sounding, there's just enough referential familiarity to ease your diving right in unaware. Don't be afraid to try this band on and walk around a bit. You'll be glad you did. 

Restorations performs with New Archery, Declan Ryan & Close Calls, and Tim Avery on Sunday, September 15, 8 p.m., at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Ave. $8-$10. bugjar.com.
