ROCK: The Violet Lights 

L.A. by way of Green Bay, Wisconsin, rock and raunch duo The Violet Lights pays so much homage to Britpop, you'd swear this band was from Blighty. There's Mancunian guitar tremolo on some tracks, and Glasgowian choruses on others, giving debut EP "Sex & Sound" an across-the-pond vibe. Joel Nass (vocals, guitar) and Amber Garvey (keyboard, vocals) make it tasty and leave audiences wanting for more. Lead single "Your Love/Not Enough" is pure bubblegum dance-punk that's got me jumpin' like Jack Flash. With Routine Involvements and Veluxe. DJ Professor follows the bands at midnight.

The Violet Lights perform Tuesday, November 13, 9 p.m. at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Ave. $6-$8. 454-2966, bugjar.com.
