POST-PUNK | Bella's Bartok 

Massachusetts-based band Bella's Bartok plays a distinct mix of punk-rock, bohemian/folk, and dance music, complete with creative, broad instrumentation and unexpected group harmonies. The band describes its sound as being akin to, "Tom Waits kicking the crap out of the Fleet Foxes, whilst being serenaded by a klezmer wedding band." While that description seems rather unusual, it paints a surprisingly accurate sonic portrait of what the band has to offer. Similar to eccentric post-punk artists like Man Man and Gogol Bordello, Bella's Bartok offers music that combines raw, punk-rock energy with a love for experimentation.

The show takes place Friday, May 10, 9 p.m. at The Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Ave. $5-$7. bugjar.com.
