Hospitality to Show Boise Some Musical Manners 

Sunday, Oct. 7, at Red Room

Life in New York City serves as inspiration for songwriter Amber Papini, vocalist and guitar-wielding frontwoman of Brooklyn, N.Y., indie-pop quartet Hospitality.

Her lyrics tell the story of various NYC characters, like a former co-worker in "Betty Wang," to whom Papini sings: "If you leave New York / I don't care / I'll follow you back to Tokyo." Papini's whispered odes unfold like a poem for a tender lover.

But Hospitality's tracks also meander down punky back alleys, most memorably on the catchy "Friends of Friends," where Papini sing-shouts the song's refrain with spunk. However, Hospitality's slower songs, like the mid-album "Sleepover," show more soul as Papini sings "Beige chiffon, silk and roses / Lock the door, I'll take your coat."

Hospitality released its first self-titled LP earlier this year. The band will spread out the silk sheets for Boise Sunday, Oct. 7.
