Flashbulb Fires, June 25, Crux 

Flashy

The Crux has hosted some great music on its stage. Not only has the 21-and-older crowd been introduced to emerging bands but as an all-ages venue, The Crux has been integral in sharing music with a younger crowd that might not be able to see it otherwise (in an up-close setting). It's win-win-win, because that opens up a whole new fan base for visiting bands.

An act that will no doubt make new friends here in Boise is Denver, Colo.-based Flashbulb Fires.

The self-described "indie haze-pop" quartet takes standard instrumentation and buoys it with less conventional gear like glockenspiel, melodica and omnichord to create soundscapes that ripple beneath faraway layers of choir-like backing vocals and the ebb and flow of singer Patrick McGuire's voice.

Flashbulb Fires is poised to become a "I-saw-them-before-they-were-big" bands and makes its Boise stop on the heels of a Daytrotter Session. See Flashbulb Fires live--everybody wins.
