Note: Music, shows and shops | To note
The big news for music this week is that Treefort has dropped the new lineup for September and people seem really excited about it. Each year Treefort brings a huge presence to Boise, transforming this small town into what feels like a bustling metropolis. It’s a fun thing to look forward to.
The report from this edition of Boise Weekly winks at it. There is an excellent Q&A on page 6 from one of the co-founders of Treefort Music Fest, Eric Gilbert. He prepares the new training and says which groups, both local and national, that people should check out.
Then following the theme of the music on page 10 there is a story about the Treefort lineup with all the bands listed. On page 11, there is a story about local venues restarting shows. The shows are back but with new regulations due to COVID. The Neurolux kicks off with the first in town – it’s Doug Martsch from Built to Spill and it’s tonight, April 28th. This one is complete – but watch the story to see what’s to come. And for BTS fans: don’t worry, as there are two more Martsch shows on the way.
Shifting gears, there’s a story on page 10 about a lovely new store on the bench called Lost & Found. It has a ton of cool vintage and craft items, check out all it has to offer – some photos really capture the vibe.
