Grove St by The Owyhee

Want to watch musicians take their skills to the streetball court? 3 on 3 metal bands vs. indie rock basketball battles in their stage clothes? Check out bands like Fresh Kils and Planes on Paper defy all that you knew was possible when they try for that off-the-bumper dunk.

As always, it’s “free and totally, gloriously pointless”.

If you’re in a band playing Treefort, you can sign up here.


Band Dialogue VII

Saturday, March 24th 5:00-6:00pm
Celebration Circle at JUMP

Composed and conducted by Seth Olinsky (Cy Dune), Band Dialogue is a massive composition, experiment, and conversation that explores the sonics of many bands, stretched out across a space, playing simultaneously, part orchestra, part installation. Continuing in the lineage of large scale guitar and drum events by the likes of NYC composer Rhys Chatham and Osaka noise lords Boredoms, each version is adapted to the site and bands for something totally unique – bands radiate their individual glory while simultaneously expanding into one colossal sound.

Though the public has access to all of these rad activities and events, if you want to guarantee being a part of the festival, you should buy a 5-day Treefort pass. In some cases, Treefort passholders have priority entry into events before the public.

Get your Treefort pass now for $195 (plus fees) here or swing by the Record Exchange!
