ROCK | New Archery 

If you love Joywave, and have seen the band perform at least once within the past couple of years, you are likely to recognize the members of New Archery, previously known as Doctors. The two bands have played side-by-side in many past local line-ups. However, the recent name-change has ushered in an entirely new identity, and sound, for this familiar band. As Doctors, the band's sound was catchy, melodic, and pop-driven. As New Archery, the band has ditched the feel-good, structured, dancey sounds for music that has a much greater depth of feeling and a much looser approach to melody and structure. New Archery's new knack for experimentation has allowed the band's music to mature into something truly noteworthy and sincere.

New Archery performs with Mikaela Davis, The Michael Valada Trio, and Par 6 on Saturday, May 25, 8 p.m. at The Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Ave. $6-$8.
