Is/Is bringing lo-fi rock to FOKL this Tuesday, 10/8

Full disclosure: Is/Is is a Minneapolis band, a relatively popular one, and I have seen it perform multiple times. It does kind of a lo-fi, DIY, postpunk thing, like releasing new music on limited-edition cassettes. You know, that kind of band. 

It would all sound a little too precious if Is/Is wasn't such a legitimate rock band, managing to somehow turn fuzzy, disjointed, static chords into intricate and sophisticated songs. Lead singer Sarah Rose layers her vocals with some oozy distortion, giving the band's recently released self-titled album a deliciously sludgy sound.

Is/Is is playing tomorrow night at FOKL. Watch their witchy video for "Fire" below. 


In this week's print edition, you may have noticed that this show is listed as Wednesday, October 9. That is incorrect. The show is taking place Tuesday, October 8, per the FOKL website.
