MusicfestNW: Young the Giant, Youth Lagoon, Vanaprasta 

When: Thu., Sept. 5, 5:30 p.m. 2013
Price: $32
Nobody has ever voluntarily listened to the gaping mediocrity that is Young the Giant, including you. So why on earth are they headlining this thing? Weird fact: No actual humans were involved in Young the Giant's apparent rise to success. Rather, an unholy combination of radio airplay and product placement have put this conglomeration of old, disused parts from crappy Killers albums into the forefront of American popular music consciousness simply because we're all too tired to fight it anymore. Arrive early for Boise's Youth Lagoon, who have transformed the fragile, sulking bedroom synth-sketches of Trevor Powers into widescreen epics that will fill up the entire square. Then, get the hell out. NED LANNAMANN
