SELECT SIX: SUNDAY’S MUSIC PICKS

Our This Is Boise music staff picks for today’s Treefort festivities!

Zeta

Zeta

4:00pm | The Hideout

Defined by its strong emphasis on dense polyrhythmic percussion that sway from profoundly authentic Afro-Caribbean to the most crude and raw punk with atmospheric elements that are drawn from 70’s era Psychedelia and post-rock to form a visceral, intense and unique listening experience.

Pink FuzZ

Pink Fuzz

5:00pm | The Hideout

Pink Fuzz can still throw down with the heaviest rock n’ roll, but what is setting them apart is their ability to balance that with beautiful melodies and a wide array of dynamics.

Monta at Odds

Monta at Odds

6:50pm | Neurolux

Monta at Odds is a post-punk electronic collective that ventures into dark synthpop, psychedelia, artrock, and dub echo grooves. Dedric’s pulsing, melodic bass and Delaney’s artfully unhinged synthesizers frame the band’s central character, which is fleshed out by a talented cast of KC musicians and collaborators who also lead their own fantastic groups.

Kim Gordon

Kim Gordon

7:40pm | Main Stage

With a career spanning nearly four decades, Kim Gordon is one of the most prolific and visionary artists working today. A co-founder of the legendary Sonic Youth, Gordon has performed all over the world, collaborating with many of music’s most exciting figures including Tony Conrad, Ikue Mori, Julie Cafritz and Stephen Malkmus.

Deadender

Deadender

11:00pm | The Shredder

A punk band that hate songs longer than 3 minutes and very loud.

Built to Spill

Built to Spill

Treefort wouldn’t be the same without local indie rock band Built to Spill playing a set or two (or three). Built to Spill has returned to the band’s original concept of having a shifting rotation of non-permanent members. The current lineup features Boise bassist Melanie Radford (Marshall Poole, Blood Lemon) and New Mexico drummer Teresa Cruces (Prism Bitch) and longtime BTS contributer, Doug Martsch.
