Two local bands ruminate on Boise's music scene and opening for Built to Spill
By Tara Morgan
Few bands born from Boise's insular womb have broken free from her maternal clutches. For the handful that have courted audiences outside of the city's limits, touring means driving a rickety van to Portland, Eugene or Seattle on a diet of gas station beef jerky and Rockstar. But for Built to Spill, Boise's biggest indie success story, this town is less of a cage and more of a place to rest their weary heads. Their latest tour will take the band across Europe to play their seminal 1997 album Perfect from Now On in its entirety.
