Couches seriously rocked it hard in the late afternoon.

For Fucks Sake

For Fucks Sake

For Fucks Sake was approximately what it sounds like. Grating electro-noise from a guy who seems nice but looks terrifying in a pig mask

Generationals

Treefort had Generationals out this year which is a classic indie band with a great sound.

Posse brought their chilled out apathetic rock to Linen Building. It was perfect drinking music.

I don’t have enough awesome things to say about Parade of Bad Guys’ music. It’s an excellent mix of soulful rock and country/bluegrass.

And to end the third night of Treefort 2015 was Red Hands Black Feet. We have been following them for a couple of years now and we are excited to hear some new material later this year from them.

Treefort Music Fest Day 4

The fourth and final day of Treefort Music Fest was a magical day full of amazing music. It started with our first brewery show and ended with one of the weirdest house parties we’ve ever been to. It was an amazing weekend full of generous hospitality, incredible musicianship, and total grandness.

MANATEE COMMUNE

To start off the last day of Treefort we headed down to Woodland Empire brewery to the Apes On Tape showcase. The first band that we caught was Manatee Commune, a chillwave artist from Bellingham, WA.

AUTONOMICS

Autonomics 1

Autonomics, as seen at Big Ass Boom Box, is a PDX up and comer with catchy and memorable tunes.

TRRRST!

Despite the accusation, these guys are actually pretty agreeable. Check out this awesomely groovy DIY punk, a new project featuring Clark from Clark and the Himselfs.

AU

watermark213

AU is a cascading swirling mix of psychedelia. The kind of trips you go on as a little kid or in the moments before sleep.

AAN

Aan is one of our favorite Portland bands, and they seem to get better every time we see them.

Cumulus is some gratifying indie rock. It’s light on its feet. The sound makes our ears happy.

THANKS

Thanks is a really cool soul band from Portland.

THE JOY FORMIDABLE
The Joy Formidable 5

From North Wales comes the contemporary sounding tunage of The Joy Formidable. We thoroughly enjoy the live performance since the lead gal is overflowing with charisma.

FIRST BORNS

First Borns 3

First Borns is just real good lo-fi freedom rock.

BEARCUBBIN’!

Bearcubbin 3

Bearcubbin’! is straight up math dance rock.

BOYFRNDZ

After being rocked by Bearcubbin’!, Boyfrndz came out with their brand of noise rock.

TARTUFI

What is a Tartufi? I’m still not sure, but I know it’s doomy and rocks hard.

We would like to thank everyone who helped out at Treefort, all the musicians, the volunteers, the staff, and most importantly the city of Boise.
