Scope & Figure
[INDIE] Rochester’s Scope & Figure finish out the year with a Buffalo date before going on hiatus to finish a new record to follow this year’s Exemplary Sports Magic EP. The addictive four-song quickie is a perfect introduction to the band’s core musical spirit, which takes sunshiny bursts of psychedelic pop and tweaks them with frayed punk edges. The results are hyper and scrappy in all the best ways. The closer, “Calm Me Down,” slows the pace, but the guitar work is “exemplary magic” indeed. Friday, December 11 at Mohawk Place with locals Dreambeaches, Sonny Baker and Mr. Boneless.
