ROCK | Alt-J 

The formula to Alt-J's music is to stay as unpredictable as possible. With its debut album, "An Awesome Wave" — and one of my favorite albums of 2012 — Alt-J frantically blended clever musical ideas that kept the record fresh listen after listen. From glitch electronica, danceable grooves, and heavy distorted guitars to sweet coos and wistful folk (a la Fleet Foxes), Alt-J's creativity has been lauded by critics and embraced by audiences at large.

Alt-J will perform Wednesday, September 23, at the Main Street Armory, 900 East Main Street. 8 p.m. $39.50. Tickets available at the door. mainstreetarmory.com; altjband.com.

    Summer starts June 21, so with beautiful weather inevitable during the next few months, there's no reason to stay home. We say it every year, but it's always true: Western New York comes alive during the summer months.
