The Thieves 

Thursday, June 22, The Bouquet

Late the other night, while surfing the Web, I decided to check in on one of my favorite bands, the Thieves, to see if there were any tour updates. When I clicked on the "tour" button I discovered their schedule included Salt Lake City on the 21st and Seattle on the 23rd. Wait! Salt Lake to Seattle with a day in between and no Boise stop? I think not. After a little research (and several e-mails to band member Sam Stokes), I was informed that they do have a show scheduled in Boise. Well, even though I was the last to know, the Thieves play the Bouquet on Thursday, June 22 and that's all that really matters.

If you've never seen the Thieves on stage, I encourage you to do so. English born and bred, the Brothers Stokes (lead vocalist and guitarist Hal and bassist Sam) and drummer Jamie Dawson now reside in the Golden State. With hundreds of shows under their worn leather belts, these boys mix Brit rock and SoCal sound to create a unique blend that is all rock and roll. Unfortunately, Dawson had some issues to attend to on the other side of the Atlantic, so while he won't be here, replacement drummer Sid the Pirate is sitting in on skins and according to a very reliable source, he's "wicked."

(On a side note, like many of the Queen's subjects faced with national fare that includes blood sausage, black pudding and clotted cream, these guys love Indian food and claim Boise is home to some of the best they've ever had.)
