Some bands have an over-poignant message and an art-uber-alles pathos that they will adhere to at all costs. And some bands just play for fun. Count General Scott and the Doctors in the latter group. Made up of friends who either attend or work at the University of Minnesota Duluth, this adept folk-rock sextet plays old favorites as well as some originals. Band members Mark Zmudy, Carina Mikulich Ellis, Chad Kurtyka, Robby Stenson, and Jessica Pistor pride themselves on sharing rich harmonies while Guy Merolle provides the steady back beat.

10pm Sat 5/7 @ Roscoe’s Pioneer Bar
