Without a doubt, Treefort is at the top of my festival bucket list. This downtown Boise, ID festival once again features a lineup that is well and truly stacked from top to bottom, with the emphasis being on showcasing bands from the very, very fertile Western lands. After poring over this year's lineup, these are the bands I'm swooning over the hardest.
"Space punk?" "Mutant pop"? When it comes to Lawrence, KS dudes Arc Flash both shoes fit pretty dang well. Their feisty frenzy is instantly irresistible, and I have every confidence that these two really rip things up from here to high heaven when they're on a stage.
