Ayron Jones and The Way 

Saturday, Sept. 26, Reef

Washington's Puget Sound is an idyllic place where orcas breach the ice-blue sea and sailboats float in the shadow of majestic Mount Rainier... in visitors' brochures, anyway. Hearing Seattle-based Ayron Jones' take on it, the Pacific Northwest is gritty and crackles with the energy of a lightning storm—not unlike the Ayron Jones and The Way frontman himself.

The trio's rock/hip-hop/blues/funk/punk sound is reminiscent of everything and nothing you've heard before. Watching Jones play live is similar to watching a parkour expert navigate a cityscape.

Henry Rennar, talent buyer for Reef, caught Ayron Jones and The Way when the band played Treefort Music Fest 2015.

"Saturday night of Treefort, I came to check on Reef. I had intended to go to two other shows after checking in," Rennar wrote in an email to Boise Weekly. "I came into Reef [during] the song 'Boys From the Puget Sound,' and my jaw was on the floor ... [they] destroyed that stage." Rennar never made it to those other two acts.

Local rockers Marshall Poole open, so this is a can't-miss show.
