FOG 7TH S T. ENTRY, SATURDAY 5 .7 In 2007, Andrew Broder’s electro project Fog released the astounding Ditherer. That LP, which scored critical love from BBC, Village Voice, and Filter for its whirring bedroom noise, was the group’s last before breaking up in 2008. In the eight intervening years, Broder focused on his rock band, the Cloak Ox. But that all changed on April 29 when Fog returned with the severely under-hyped For Good on Totally Gross National Product. The record is led by the almost confrontationally artistic “Trying,” which comes in fits of groans and synthesizers. Who knows what the future holds for Broder or Fog — could the album’s title signal a permanent farewell? Don’t take any chances; Saturday’s release show with Greg Grease and Psymun is not to be missed. 18+. $12-$15. 8 p.m. 701 First Ave. N., Minneapolis; 612-338-8388. — JERARD FAGERBERG
