I am grouping these three shows together because Run Westy Run and Iffy are related. RWR (featuring Daniel, Kirk, Kraig, and Kyle) were never quite as popular as their local peers (Hüsker Dü, the Replacements, and Soul Asylum), and by the 90s, Kirk's brother Kraig joined the Jayhawks (and later Golden Smog) and singer Kirk went on to form Iffy.
If you've nothing going on this Christmas day (December 25th) and the weekend (12/26 and 12/27), head over to the 7th Street Entry for a bit of a blast from the past.
Iffy teased us of a new album for 2016:
After a few years playing it cool IfFy is back!!!
To end 2015 on a high IfFy will be playing live at Minneapolis' 7th Street Entry stage on the 26th & 27th of December.
The 26th December show has SOLD OUT
So for you we added an extra show!!
Don't miss out and check us out the 27th of December...
Are the guys working on a new album?
Well lets just say 2016 looks like a IfFy year.
