Alive After Five: Brad Parsons & Starbird 

Grove Plaza, July 25

Though his first solo rock/Americana album, Hold True (self-released, 2017), features melodic guitar riffs, low bass strumming and the ever-present backbeat of a drum set, it's Brad Parsons' rich vocal performance that impresses. Hold True is the perfect soundtrack to s'mores and ice-cold beers, and gives off the kind of angsty, nostalgic late-summer vibe that makes Parsons a perfect fit for Boise's Alive After Five concert series. Parsons, a past member of the Oregon-based band Horse Feathers now going it alone, will appear on July 25 with the East Coast jam band Starbird, a mix of members from Tom Hamilton's American Babies and Cabinet. If you miss his Alive After Five performance, catch him at the Sawtooth Valley Gathering in Stanley or at the Ketchum Concert Series in Ketchum later in the week.
