Alive After Five: Scars on 45 

July 22, Grove Plaza

Scars on 45 is no stranger to Boise. The British band has spun through the City of Trees a few times, returning Wednesday, July 22 to bring its definitive adult guitar-pop to the Grove Plaza for Alive After Five.

Back in 2008, Scars on 45 had a song featured in the now-canceled A&E series The Cleaner (starring Benjamin Bratt) and in 2009, the band made a big splash in the U.S. when its "Beauty's Running Wild" was used in an episode of CSI: New York--both before the band had even released its self-titled debut full-length on Chop Shop/Atlantic Recording.

Scars songs continued to be included in small-screen shows--Grey's Anatomy and Pretty Little Liars among them--as the band made its way across the U.S., touring with popular musicians and acts like Ingrid Michaelson, One Eskimo and The Fray. After Scars on 45 was released, the band's music was again on the small screen but this time, so was the band, performing on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

With local opener Tundra Brother. 5 p.m., FREE, Grove Plaza, 850 W. Front St.
