Yesterday, Boise's Treefort Music Fest announced their first round of bands that will be part of the 2014 lineup. While this takes place far outside of town, Treefort is a superfun music fest, one of the best weekends of music in the Northwest. I went out to Idaho this past March and it was great. 2014's Treefort Music Fest takes place March 20-23 and you should go.

The first round of artists includes the great Run the Jewels duo of El-P and Killer Mike, Built to Spill, and Mr. Gnome, plus the up-and-coming Saintseneca (who are going to have a huge 2014, mark my words), the Joy Formidable (who never did too much for me but who I kept hearing were a definite highlight of Musicfest), Seattle's Iska Dhaaf (members of Mt. St. Helens Vietnam Band and Mad Rad) and Denver's lovely Paper Bird. Plus a clutch of great Portland bands, like Modern Kin, Vikesh Kapoor, Hustle and Drone, Psychic Rites, and Summer Cannibals.
