What female power trio out of Minneapolis is coming to Monterey to show why they were recently named a finalist for that city's best new band? Is/Is is. This young outfit fashions it's indie-pop/punk from the influences of Mazzy Star and Black Tambourine, with vocals that sway, lull and then ultimately crash atop a wave of swelling guitar and bass. A four-song debut EP, This Happening, is due out in September, but for now the band is happy to take its surging sound out of the Twin Cities and into the western U.S. With Sarah Rose on guitar and vocals, Sarah Nienaber on bass and Mara Appel on drums, the act could be one to watch on the indie scene in years to come.
