Music is hitting the ground running!

We pulled out all of the stops for night one- 30 bands, 8 venues, and as always something for everyone.  

Josh Ritter will be filling the Cathedral of the Rockies with his breathtaking lyricism, Paste named him one of the 100 Best Living Songwriters. History of Boise Rock is kicking off the party at The El Korah Shrine! Six bands are bringing the blast-from Idaho’s past! Bop over to Crazy Horse for indie-rock-punkers Divers or Neurolux for pop sweethearts Wild Ones. Catch Hurray for The Riff Raff’s bluesy folk at the Bouquet at midnight, KEXP said that frontman Alynda Segarra “sings beautifully without flashiness, and writes protest music without losing sight of the poetry at its heart.” And be sure to bring a snack with you to Cathedral of the Rockies, sounds like wristband holders will start lining up as soon as possible. We can’t think of a better way to end the first night of Treefort than with Turquoise Jeep at Crazy Horse, how do you like your eggs?
