ABOUT TREEFORT MUSIC FEST

IDAHO. With our vast wilderness areas and mountain ranges, clean rivers and lakes, open prairies and big skies, this big little state in the NW can often feel like living on the frontier of a young developing nation — and it’s exciting times on the frontier. Here in Boise, the capitol city, in the midst of a vibrant downtown scene of young professionals, mom-and-pop local businesses, bars and nightclubs, late night pizza joints, college town energy, and progressive-minded city planning — there’s a music, dance, theater and arts scene with a fresh, vibrant outlook producing ever-growing excitement here in Boise as well as from eyes and ears outside of the Treasure Valley.

Boise has for years received accolades for being a great place to live and raise a family, but in recent years it’s been getting increased attention as a hot spot for young up-and-coming artists. It’s in this spirit, that we introduce you to TREEFORT MUSIC FEST. Conceived as an extension of the current momentum in the Boise music scene and art scene at large, our vision is that Treefort will provide the opportunity for Boise to play host to the national and regional music scenes while showcasing the local up-and-coming talent. We see Treefort as another stepping stone for our young scene — to further introduce emerging national, regional and local artists to the music fans in the Treasure Valley so that future tour stops by those bands will be greeted with more and more familiar faces and encourage more artists to consider Boise a relevant stop on their tours.

DUCK CLUB SHAKEY GRAVES PRE-PARTY WITH THERE IS NO MOUNTAIN LIVE AT THE RECORD EXCHANGE FRIDAY 5/29 – IT’S THE BAND’S ONLY SHOW IN TOWN!!

there is no mountainJoin The Record Exchange and Duck Club Presents for a Shakey Graves pre-party featuring a live performance by There is No Mountain at 6 p.m. Friday, May 29, at the RX (1105 W. Idaho St.). If you’re going to the Shakey Graves show at the Shrine, head to the store beforehand and catch a set from Treefort/Record Exchange favorites TINM! As always, this Record Exchange in-store event is free and all ages!

ABOUT THERE IS NO MOUNTAIN

Kali Giaritta // Vocals, Drums, Keys
Matt Harmon // Vocals, Guitar, Foot Tambourine

There Is No Mountain is a Portland-based husband-and-wife duo that combines percussion, guitar and an affinity for vocal harmony to create a unique brand of pop with intricate, world-music-influenced arrangements. The band’s subtly virtuosic style has been compared in print to current acts like The Dirty Projectors and classics like Paul Simon’s Graceland, but it is perhaps more telling that reviewers have tried to peg the duo’s musical influences in genres ranging from jazz to folk, classical to psychedelic rock, and world music to doom metal (all are correct!). Kali and Matt usually just call it “pop with a short attention span.”

TINM’s live set-up is an exercise in multitasking – the duo sings nearly everything in harmony while Kali plays a medley of tom drums and percussive instruments and Matt animates his acoustic guitar using nimble fingers and a bunch of carefully chosen effect pedals. African rhythms, jazz harmonies, shape-shifting arrangements, theatrical melodies and psychedelic swirls seep through the Americana exterior, making the live show a total surprise to any first-timer. After spending the last couple years on constant self-booked tours all over the country and finding themselves in situations ranging from 110-degree basements to a headline show at Lincoln Center in NYC, TINM is excited to be releasing new material this spring.

SECRET TREEFORT IN-STORE REVEAL: POSSE TODAY AT 2 PM!

unnamedToday’s Record Exchange Secret Treefort In-store is …

Posse!

Posse will perform at 2 p.m. TODAY at The Record Exchange, 1105 W. Idaho St. in Downtown Boise. As always, this Record Exchange in-store event is free and all ages — and you don’t need a Treefort pass to attend (but you should get one anyway).

ABOUT POSSE

a1862351451_2Posse is Sacha Maxim, Paul Wittmann-Todd and Jon Salzman. Neither slick nor intentionally rough, Posse’s music is meant to be a degraded reflection of their optimism, their hopelessness, their limitations, filtered through their abilities and interests.

Their songs are blankets designed with soft colors and graceful edges, made to lay over pits of anger and disappointment. They leap from mercurial, spacious leads to malevolent cross-eyed solos. The rhythm guitar drifts and phases while the bass tiptoes atop the drums.

Posse’s favorite music includes Galaxie 500, Suicide, and Yo La Tengo. Delay by Boss and Akai. Distortion and fuzz provided by Rivera, ZVex and Ibanez.

FULL SECRET TREEFORT IN-STORE SCHEDULE

Wednesday, March 25, 7pm — Buxton
Thursday, March 26, 5pm — Francisco the Man
Friday, March 27, 3pm — Joyce Manor
Saturday, March 28, 2pm — Magic Sword
Sunday, March 29, 2pm — Posse
