Music News We Missed in the Fog of Treefort

Treefort 2013 was so massive that it blocked out our ability to report on a lot of other stuff going on in the local music scene. But now that the fog has lifted, here are a couple other major bits of music news that happened recently.

For one, Pink Martini are coming to Boise. Easily Portland, Ore.’s classiest band, the jazz-pop ensemble has performed with everyone from presidential candidates to rock stars to the cast of Sesame Street. Thursday, July 11, they will be at the Morrison Center. Singer Storm Large will be performing at the show, and tickets are $39.50-$75.

Also announced is the lineup for the McCall Music Festival on Friday, July 5, and Saturday, July 6. Headliners include Pat Benatar, Big Head Todd and the Monsters, and Reckless Kelly. Two-day passes go on sale Friday, April 5, at 10 a.m. and cost $79.

Another music festival announced for July, albeit a much smaller one, is taking shape with the help of Crooked Fence Brewing at Indian Creek Winery in Kuna. Hermit Music Fest will go down Friday, July 26, and Saturday, July 27, and feature a lineup of old-timey and acoustic music curated by Boise’s Hillfolk Noir. Stay tuned for more details as they come into existence.

Possibly the biggest news, however, is that the Boise Venue announced it will be relocating to Caldwell, where it will expand to feature two stages, a full bar, a cafe, free parking and nicer bathrooms. You'll be able to read more about this move in the Wednesday, April 10, issue of Boise Weekly.
