The quirky, bespectacled power-trio of guitarist Phil Jents, bassist Brynn Sias and drummer Ryan Nelson has been performing together for nearly six years. Their melodic and maniacal sound is driven by beefy bass lines, punk beats and folk-song storytelling. In addition to occasionally doubling as Maddy Siiter’s backing band, the Farsights also backed Duluth’s then-mayor Don Ness for a song about potholes at last year’s Homegrown.
