One Last Chance to See Isis

June 16th, 2010

The post-metal L.A.-based band Isis has deftly balanced ambience and aggression since originally forming in Boston in 1997. The quintet has released five studio albums, including last year’s Wavering Radiant. And last month they announced plans to retire at the end of this tour. Fittingly, the band’s final show—a week from today—will be played in the same city as their first gig, Montreal. Kind of a bummer, right? Well the good news is that Isis and the Melvins are playing two shows in NYC this weekend. Saturday’s show at Music Hall of Williamsburg is already sold out, but you can still see Isis (above, in the studio for the Wavering Radiant sessions) one last time on Friday at Webster Hall.
