Folk | Tim Avery/The Big One 

Local singer-songwriter Tim Avery is a common presence in the Rochester scene. His music is playful and effervescent, infusing a genre that is often thought of as somber with unbridled joy. Avery pulls his melodies and vocal delivery from the punk tradition, while his acoustic guitar has hints of country and Americana. However, his affinity for sing-alongs and his energetic, whimsical stage presence point to a clear reverence for the anti-folk movement. Burlington-based The Big One claims to create "new and fun music with no limits." The band stays true to both adjectives, introducing a reggae-infused brand of indie-pop that will keep listeners on the edge of their seats. There is nothing sad or downtrodden about The Big One's music, instead, the band embraces an energetic, positive message and style.

Tim Avery and The Big One perform with White Woods, Mammal is a Mountain, and Emma Lane on Sunday, July 21, 9 p.m. at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Ave., $5-$7,
