Few have had the opportunity to bear witness to the splendor of Metro’s intimate fourth floor auditorium, Top Note Theatre, but that will change in 2019. Chicago post- punk trio FACS and DIM will be performing in the secret auditorium as part of TOMORROW NEVER KNOWS FESTIVAL on Sunday, January 20. TICKETS GO ON SALE FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 16, AT NOON. A full event announcement can be found below.
Comprised of Alianna Kalaba, Noah Leger and Brian Case, FACS utilizes minimalism and space to craft post-punk tinged art-rock. Their debut album Negative Houses was released earlier this year via Trouble In Mind Records.
FACS sprung forth from the ashes of beloved Chicago band DISAPPEARS in early 2017. Musically, FACS heads in the same direction as Disappears, albeit on a different path. They approach the stark, gothy post-punk they perfected more rhythmically and abstract than in Disappears. With Leger’s motorik, machine-like drumming taking the forefront and van Herik’s
guitar alternating between slashes of dissonant ambience and percussive accent, Case adds an economical throb to the band’s sound through guitar, bass, and vocals.
