Treefort Music Fest may have officially started on Wednesday, but the festival doesn't hit its full stride until the main stage opens. That happened on Thursday, when Vancouver, British Columbia-based Black Mountain filled the venue and rocked the house.

At The Olympic, Boise-based Wild Spells performed songs off its debut album, This is the Way We Defend Ourselves, which was released earlier this year. The festival has always prided itself on bringing a broad range of acts to Boise, but singer Erin Nelson put a finer point on it: "[Expletive] white supremacy," she said to the audience.

Frankiie, which also hails from Vancouver, filled the Linen Building for a set before rushing to The Record Exchange for an in-store performance. The all-female quartet was followed by Sydney-based pop-punk band Bloods, which performed a few songs off an album that's set for release later this year.
