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.
If you're in the hunt for some decadent, 80s-esque dancefloor debauchery, look no further than Carpenter Brut. From France with love, these sounds take inspiration from vintage horror flicks and are more than likely deadly to dance to (in a good way, obviously).
