We Made It Out Alive! Treefort Day 5

Day five was a lot of fun. Despite waking up to a couple of inches of snow, it turned quite nice, it rapidly melted way. I took it easier than the previous four days and I still managed to photograph ten shows. Early in the day, I spent a little time with a couple of… Read More »

Today Was a Good Day – Day 4 Treefort

A long Saturday and it was a doozy. It was a lovely day for a music festival. I caught a lot great acts. Many I’ve never heard before. I love all the side-shows of Treefort, I caught a couple of those today. And And And, Tocaio, and Haley Heynderickx. Saturday is usually my favorite day… Read More »

Day 3 – Treefort is Keeping Us Busy.

I feel I took it a lot easier for day 3, but I also saw a lot of great music. Unlike my media-comrades-in-arms, I have been approaching my assignment like a regular show-goer. I don’t dart in and dart out for a couple of pictures and hit the next venue. I usually stick around for… Read More »

Thursday! Treefort Day 2

I knew Thursday’s lineup would be good, I knew it would be good, but it exceeded my expectations. The worked out nicely! The first stop was Neurolux for Kid Dakota, from Minneapolis. Not a great band name, but a damn fine two piece rock band. It was an early show and the venue wasn’t very… Read More »

Welcome Back to Boise – Day 1

Treefort is starting off nicely. I really love this festival, I enjoy the format of this festival. For the uninitiated Treefort is a five-day music festival with stages scattered across downtown. The stages are at different bars and music venues. There are often lines to get into the different stages. That’s ok though, it’s still… Read More »

A 5 Day Treefort Adventure

This was my second Treefort, I’m glad I was able to attend this year. I’ll try to breakdown how it works. The festival does not work like most summer festivals do, but a lot of format similarities are clear. With a lot of summer music festivals you can show up and camp or get a… Read More »

Time to Rally for Day 5 of Treefort

I’m a little tired and may even be a bit burnt out. I managed to still catch some great bands though. Navigating the streets and venues on day 5 of Boise was challenging, but I carried on. Five days do seem like a long time for a music festival. Although this is not a camping… Read More »

I Slowed Down for Day 4

Day 4 was nice and easy and I didn’t huff around town as I had in the first three days. I could tell that other attendees were a bit slower as well. Saturday was a day that I caught up with bands that I am already familiar with. It was a nice change, but hopefully… Read More »

Rainy Day at Treefort, Day 3

Let the rain come. The music still won’t stop. Another day here in the musical wild west. There is so much music, it’s hard to keep track of all the places I needed to go. The Treefort app does make it easier though. Despite the constant rain, there were huge crowds of people running from… Read More »

I Went to a Play! Day 2 at Treefort

On Thursday: Travis, Berg, Nathan and I went to a brilliant play at the Boise Contemporary Theater called “There’s Chinese Tunnels Under Boise”. I can tell you that the play has a musical theme, but isn’t a Musical. I don’t want to tell you too much, I don’t want to spoil it. The play was… Read More »

Treefort 2017 Day 1

Day one was a pretty good start. I only caught a few bands, but it was still a fantastic start. This is not a review of the shows, I just want to share some images from the sets. The acts that I caught: Fulton and Hunt Meat Puppets Trout Steak Revival Tomorrow is a new… Read More »
