One of indie rock's forefathers brings his "solo" act to Rochester on Monday. Tim Kasher, lead singer, guitarist, and the brains and brawn behind Omaha-based bands The Good Life and Cursive released "The Game of Monogamy" in 2010, his first album not credited to either group. The record is definitely special and full of sounds Kasher only hinted at toward before. There are instrumentals, orchestral arrangements, strings, horns, ballads, and the obligatory one-minute sonic blast blended into an amazingly new and important statement for a songwriter that has made a career of such narratives. For this show he will have a backing band with him - a more straightforward rock set-up, plus a trumpet player - and up-and-coming band Aficionado, which has its roots in punk and post-rock, will help fill out the bill.Tim Kasher performs Monday, August 22, 8:30 p.m. at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Ave. $12-$14. 454-2966, bugjar.com.
