It's been some time in the making, but Bipolar Jukebox's new piano-driven rock opus, Museum of Sorts, is finally finished and ready to ship. The band, led by area multi-instrumentalist Andre Balazs, will celebrate at a release party on Jan. 25 at Hartford's Japanalia. Balazs and company are Hartford-area mainstays; they come from a core group of Sully's-based musicians that includes Kate Callahan, Randy Collins and Matt Zeiner. Museum, Bipolar Jukebox's first release since their self-titled 2008 debut, is well worth the wait, so head to the party and grab a copy.
