Mostly Muff, VAC, Feb. 13
After the release of Monsters of Folk in 2009--featuring Jim James, Conor Oberst, Mike Mogis and M. Ward--the term "indie rock supergroup" was bandied about. Now, Boise has its own indie rock supergroup--with a winkingly yonic twist.
"We decided that if we're going to be called Mostly Muff, we have to have a guy in the band," said Lisa Simpson from Finn Riggins, laughing. "So, Sam [Stimpert], who co-owns the Visual Arts Collective, is our token male member of the band."
Mostly Muff, an '80s male-hair-metal cover band, features Simpson on guitar, Stimpert on tambourine, Ivy Meissner from Le Fleur on bass, Gia Trotter from The Very Most and Spondee on keyboards, and Tristan Trotter on drums.
On Saturday, Feb. 13, Mostly Muff will be joined by Hairless Whisker, Matt Damon's Love Child and DJ Doug Martsch with proceeds benefiting ALPHA.
Saturday, Feb. 13, 8 p.m., $5, Visual Arts Collective, 3638 Osage St., 208-424-8297, visualartscollective.com.
