Last year's inaugural Treefort Music Festival, taking place in downtown Boise, Idaho, looked really fun, as we enviously noticed from afar. This year, though, they've really outdone themselves. Yesterday they announced the final additions (more than 100 bands!) to the already impressive lineup, asserting that merely in its second year, Treefort is already definitively one of the Northwest's great music fests. Here's part four of a goofy promotional video series they made for the fest; I haven't watched the first three parts yet but I find this final installment oddly endearing.
A tip of the iceberg of who's playing Treefort on the weekend of March 21-24:
Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, The Walkmen, Animal Collective, Built to Spill, Earth, YACHT, Brother Ali, Camper Van Beethoven, Youth Lagoon, Gold Panda, Dan Deacon, Delicate Steve, SUBLIME FREQUENCIES, Shlohmo, Dauwd, Shigeto, THEESatisfaction, Japanther, White Lung, Foxygen, Naomi Punk, Deep Sea Diver, Slow Magic, Grass Widow...The list goes on and on, and there are lots of Portland bands playing as well:
Typhoon , Brainstorm, Y La Bamba, Quasi, The Thermals, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Natasha Kmeto, Wooden Indian Burial Ground, Radiation City, Shy Girls, Genders, Karaoke From Hell, Wampire, Death Songs, AAN, And And And, Hillstomp, Dark Time Sunshine, Boy Eats Drum Machine, Nick Jaina, Sapient, Sun Angle, Quick and Easy Boys, Grandparents, Kris Doty, The We Shared Milk, The Jackolope Saints, Nehemia St Danger, Pony Village, Talkative, Milo Duke, Sam Cooper and Friends, Audioavi8Head over to the Treefort site and take a look at the full lineup (or peep the poster here), and you'll probably want to score some tickets, too, because this looks unmissable. (At $109 right now for all four days, that's cheap!) Now, who do I know in Boise who has a couch I can crash on?
