There's a Japanese band called Envy that has been doing a similar thing for years...
Congratulations on completely missing the fact that it's demented because of the pop punk sound. Funny you mention "average pop punk" when that's exactly what you wanted to hear out of the band, and don't know enough to realize you haven't gotten it.
How does one get a hold of Greg Gillis's booking agent?
This concert was amazing, it was my first concert and i wouldn't trade it for anything! It was the best concert I've been to, i hope they perform there again soon!
A mormon singing jazz, go figure. Some of the worst skat singing I have ever heard!

This person is all of the above and more.
What he is not is an artist passing on a style set by Barrett etc. He actually serves the satanic individuals responsible for Barrett's mental demise.
Hitchcock is a fraud and WILL be exposed as such.
I think our local reviewer did an excellent job of capturing the synopsis of the show and crediting the talent that was showcased. All the bands consisted of top-notch musicianship, although categorically it was like comparing apples to oranges with the wide array of genres that were represented. I guess I would not be surprised if there was one favorite over another for each individual listener based on music preference. What was clear though, Stop-Drop definately had the crowd in their favor (evident by a packed floor and seeing how many left when they quit playing), and maybe the singer did get slightly pitchy towards the end, but who could ever match his pace and energy so I will cut him a little slack, but the musicianship, and hooky, chantable, chorus lines demonstrated a strong potential to write commercially viable hits! As for AD, seasoned musicians do make a proven diffence and they represent their style of music incredibly well, but for me the star of that band is really the bass player (and rythem section, because it was tight), although their music stylings would tend to appeal to an older audience (hence the result of the older judges who probably aren't your typical concert attendees and favored the quieter bands), with SD&P definately catering to the teen Warp Tour crowd (and the kids were eating it up and amazingly sang along to their songs, so what does that tell you?). Bottom line, Boise has an incredibly gifted plethera of talented musicians, which makes our quaint little town totally ripe for a highly credible music scene that could rival and compete against any city in the US based on talent alone. Just catch any Local's Night at The Knitting Factory and be prepared to be blown away!!! All Battle participants are to be congratulated for a job well done! Thanks Boise Weekly for giving this event the attention it deserves... the musicians certainly earned it.
I've been watching these guys for about a year and as far as I'm concerned (and my friends) - they're the best band in Boise. They're tight (it's obvious they practice), they write their own stuff - and it's great, and they put on a good show. Going to one of their shows is like catching a concert - with drinks!! If you haven't seen them yet, it's worth the trip. Thanks, AD!!! Always a great show!
i totally disagree with keeping my eye on all the other bands at battle of the bands....the only band worth seeing was Actual Depiction. They totally blew everyone else out of the water. There was no contest there....Actual Depiction just walked out on stage, poured their addictive music over the crowd and walked away victorious! No surprise at all!
I love Shiragirl!
And he did not do an encore although the fans asked for it.

You guys rock.
Got to say that the awesome cover art is by Boise's own Zella Strickland, fabulous artist and darned nice person!
Thanks a million.
High Desert Band
Wait, he DID play "like a Rolling Stone" as the grand finally.
I am curious as to the age of Molly Kumar the writer of Show Review: Bob Dylan ~ in reference to the statement "His presence added to the sharpness of his lyrics and the talent of his band." HELLO MOLLY!!!! YOUR TALKING ABOUT BOB DYLAN!! A MUSICAL ICON AND SONGWRITER GENIUS! The fact that he even played a venue such as The IDAHO BOTANICAL GARDENS ~ IS AMAZING IN ITSELF! I would be interested in how long was his set, did he perform an encore, etc. . . . Molly, honey, sharpen your pencil and think before you write ~ thanks for the fashion update, I can die happy knowing what Bob was wearing at his gig in Idaho! I want your job!!!
I've been to a lot of rock shows from every part of the genre, and Nickelback put on one of the most engaging, entertaining, and energetic shows I've ever seen. The Idaho Center was packed and rockin last night. They were one of the biggest sellers of the 2000's and Dark Horse is already a popular album. They must be doing something right.
Yes, the public has "allowed" Nickelback to climb to such grandiose heights....hmmm...tell you anything? The public loves them. I love them. Chad Kroeger has an AWESOME singing voice! And the the rest of his band is equally talented. I was at their concert last night. They rocked the Center! I have seen them in interviews. They did not come even close to being conceited. It seems like you might be jealous....or prejudice for some reason...something. When billions love them and you don't, why do you think anyone would listen to you tell us to turn off the radio? It would appear that their rock star status is not merely a fantasy...but a fact. Wake up. And to top it all off, I think the name "Dark Horse" is cool.
Typical...I hate anything that's popular response. I hate anything that I don't like. Funny, how the crappy Idaho Center was rockin' last night with the Puppies, Shinedown, Breaking Benjamin and yes Nickelback.
I bet you'll be harping on Shinedown next.
