ROCK | Auld Lang Syne 

Once in a while, a group comes along whose songwriting and musicianship are equally inspired. Auld Lang Syne is that band. With thick harmonies and raucous boot stomping the band builds upon past folk music. The vocals are near angelic, but somehow they stay rooted in that dirty old-time swagger. Started by street performers, it's easy to imagine them busking on a NYC sidewalk, instantly drawing a joyous crowd. The hooks and acoustic guitars sweep you up, while the simplicity and richness captivates your ears.

Auld Lang Syne performs with S.S. Webb, The Barry Brothers, and New City Slang on Friday, May 23, at The Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue. 8 p.m. $8-$10. Bugjar.com.
