My Random and Disjointed Guide to Treefort

Here's a bunch of stuff I just wanna throw out there--bands I want to see andthings I think would be good whether I'm going or not. 

Slang, at the RadioBoise stage on Friday night. Janet Weiss from Sleater-Kinney's latest project. I love her.
Thundercat! I dont know what to expect but I hear his shows are amazing. Check him out on Spotify. 
Thee Oh Sees. Hard stuff. I've never seen them. Promises to be scorching. 
Nosaj Thing. Great dj producer guy who I think has a couple sets. 
208 Ensemble is a local chamber group I saw at Cinder and they were great. Kids. Cool stuff. 
Hinds! Huge buzz about these 4 girls from Barcelona playing surfy garage rock. 
Aesop Rock w/ Rob Sonic. I don’t see a lot of hip hop or rap live, but I’m a fan of Aesop Rock.
White Denim, explosive and disjointed Austin indie.
Magic Sword, if you haven’t seen them. If you have, then, meh.
Wolvserpent, lovely darkness
The Mynabirds, Bay Area gentle indie.
Quilt, indie pickers with an edge.
La Luz, more surfy garage-y rock, always a good show.
Christopher Willits, ambient gorgeous soundscapes.
Thunderpussy, just because.
Marshall Poole, great local rock.
Bed. Could be pleasing if you like Telekenisis.
Summer Cannibals, same as above but a bit wilder.
Animal Eyes, fun if you are into Animal Collective.
Play Date! Bring the kids to the Radio Boise stage for these guys. Fun stuff.
Ana Lete, local, the little I've heard seems promising.
Idyltime, great local country sounds.
Cerberus Rex, heavy heavy local metal. 
Strange Wilds, Sub Pop band reminiscent of early Nirvana. 
Music Band, great name, rock. 
Frankie and the Witch Fingers, same as above, maybe better on both counts. 
DZ Deathrays, more rock!
Acid Mothers Temple, insane Japanese psych noise. 
Mascaras, surf psyche jams.
Sun Blood Stories, awesome local psychedelic. 
Conan. Metal. 
Unconditional Arms, shoegazey rock. 

See you out there!
