POP/ROCK | Wavves 

It's difficult to categorize the type of music made by San Diego-based band Wavves. At times it's an obvious ode to pop-punk, at others it's a nod to the surf-rock sounds of the 60's. Lead singer, guitarist, and songwriter Nathan Williams has created a sound that is hard to define. Wavves embraces a lo-fi, stoner aesthetic, which comes off as gritty, cool, and careless. However, that musical take is paired with a true gift for melody and structure that conveys anything but carelessness. The band released its second album, "Afraid of Heights," earlier this year, and although the music is less gritty and more refined, the band has retained the off-beat sound that has made it a staple in the current independent music scene.

Wavves performs with Dumb Angel and The Meanagers on Friday, August 2, 7 p.m. at The Club at Water Street Music Hall, 204 N. Water St. $16-$17. waterstreetmusic.com.
