Local music fans might’ve been confused when new ice and gelato joint Lia’s Ices opened in Windsor Terrace this week. The name is strangely similar to that of Lia Ices, a Cat Power–esque singer-songwriter. Lia’s Ices owner, Frank Krug, named his shop after his gelato-loving niece, so he’s in the clear, and Lia Ices, who’s being very cool about all this, tells us that her name is pronounced “eye-sis,” in any case. Still, she’s gotta be upset that her Google results are now out of whack, especially with her first album coming out September 9. Maybe Lia’s Ices should cater her release party?
