Re: “Alive After Five: Magic Giant

Magic Giant. One of the greatest bands Ive seen in the last 20+ years. This band is about ready to bust out BIG! I dont bandy about with any undeserved accolades but I was left truly speechless by the performance I saw today in the 95 heat at Alive After 5.

Not since I was floored back in November of 1994 by the then unheard of Dave Matthews Bands performance at The Backstage in Seattle have I been so excited by a new band. Seriously. Smart catchy excellently crafted jam-pop tribal mayhem with sweet-ass vocals delivered by Austin Bis to an audience of 4 generations that this band owned from the first 3 minutes on stage. They had 1000 people in their pocket and commanded a stage presence I havent seen in decades from any act.

Brian Zaghi blew me away as he wielded a cello on a guitar strap as Bis jumped around and off the stage and into the crowd like the pied piper. And ohhh, the tribal drumming...

These guys delivered and they ran the crowd like seasoned pros. Watch em and love em. I did.

Re: “Eric John Kaiser, Jan. 21, Vine Wine Shop

Interesting connection. We have a short-term stay apartment in the North End of Boise that we refer to as "Ville des Arbres" -- so this story about a Paris-born chanteur performing in "La Ville des Arbres" popped up in a "Google Alert" we have set for online references to our apartment. Small world!

Re: “Braun Brothers Reunion

Muzzie-Do you remember when you were first starting out and played for dances at the Silver Bar in Clayton, ID for Walt and Ernestine Reiman? To the day he died Walt talked of the wonderful memories of those days. We always wanted to come back to one of your reunions in Challis, Id but our timing was always off and we were always too early or too late. Maybe someday I'll show up with one of our grandkids. They would love the music.

Re: “Angel Olsen, July 31, Neurolux

Thanks for the note, Kimberly. I misconstrued the info from her publicist, and you are correct: It's not her first Boise show, it's her first Boise show in support of her new album, "Burn Your Fire for No Witness." Thanks again! ~Amy Atkins

Re: “Angel Olsen, July 31, Neurolux

Actually, Angel Olsen played the Neurolux just this last year. Photos on my Instagram. :)

Re: “Cheech and Chong, July 18, Revolution

Great Show - HORRIBLE VENUE!! Starting with the VERY thorough body search of the men while a "cursory" peak in women's purses was the first Red Flag. For a show geared more towards Baby Boomers of the 60's what happened to tables and chairs for the older crowd ? A few tables scattered along the railings of the Bar and floor were quickly nabbed up by the "runners" at the head of the line. As for spending nearly $100 per person to sit in the narrow "Catwalk like" VIP section is Ridiculous ! After 4 hrs of standing in line plus the show my wife gave in to her numb feet and said it was time to go. I won't even go into the "Mosh Pit" Bar Area were everyone was pushing and shoving to get a drink except to say - How do you run out of beer during a show !?!?! There was a good selection of beer on tap and before the intermission almost half of the tap handles had been pulled ? If you are a Coors light or Miller Lite drinker you were in Luck ! I just want to close by saying it was my 1st time at the "Revolution Center" and between the "Puff Chested" Security guards milling around looking for Pot smokers ignoring crowd control and the limited seating to try and squeeze more people on the floor I will stick to the Knitting Factory , Morrison Center or any Downtown Bar rather than the Hyped up hot , sweaty Sardine Can called the Revolution Center with $6 12 oz. beers !

Re: “Screaming Females

I saw them at Mootsy's in Spokane. Don't miss this show! Actually, only one of the females screams, but she takes the head of the microphone in her mouth, and then lets go. Awesome.
