Carson and Scott of In the Aisles to call in to Midday with K

March 8th, 2014 by kristengogol · No Comments

Join us this Wednesday at 4:30pm for a telephone interview with Carson of In the Aisles on Midday with K Chicago WIIT 88.9FM streaming live at radio.iit.edu

Bio:
Beginning as just a “jam-band”, In The Aisles is finding its niche in the local music scene, and turning into one of the Chicago-land’s up and coming Rock acts.. The sound can be described as a amalgamation of Alternative Rock, with an melodic Grunge/Punk sound.. In a world where honest music seems to be fading away, very few bands express such raw emotions with a full sound as In The Aisles. In The Aisles has formed a unique and passionate fan base, with there powerful music and highly talked about live shows…This 3 piece has quickly risen to local recognition, and its safe to say that, In The Aisles will continue to exceed all expectations put in front of them. If you haven’t heard their music, it’s just a matter of time…………
