Pop/Rock | Sports 

Ever since it formed in Rochester in 2010, the keyboard-driven Sports has skated that fine line between Elvis Costello's angst, Squeeze's gorgeous pop, Talking Heads' quirk, and Rockpile's hits and hooks. Just what I look for in a band; angst, quirk, hits, and hooks. In the truest sense of the over-used pop label, Sports is a pure pop band and one of the best pop bands you'll ever hear. Just try and sit still. I dare you.

Sports performs with Afro Nips and Muler Friday, January 10, 9 p.m., at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Ave. $7-$9.
