The Galaxy Forest 

Saturday, May 23, Reef

Reggae, funk and R&B aren't sounds often associated with the plains of Eastern Idaho, but they come together in The Galaxy Forest, a self-described "mountain reggae band" based in Idaho Falls.

Fronted by Felicia and Alicia Banks, the band channels the sauntering groove of the islands but isn't afraid to venture into uptempo new age funk or crunchy ballads. Spacey rhythms give way to talk-sung ruminations on "love, peace, respect and one love" and The Galaxy Forest's stated aim is to start a "love revolution."

It's revolutionary enough to be a reggae band from I.F., and with an airtight backing band, that revolution is coming to Boise for a Saturday, May 23 date with the stage at Reef.

10 p.m., $5. Reef, 105 S. Sixth St., 208-287-9200, reefboise.com.
