Portland, Ore.'s Blind Pilot is no stranger to Boise. The band has performed at the Linen Building on two occasions and delivered shows at various small locales prior to its now-widespread success. On this upcoming tour, our neighbors to the northwest will take on the Knitting Factory--a far bigger stage than the band previously graced on its first couple of bicycle-powered tours.

This indie folk band has a twang and melody similar to Summerteeth-era Wilco. It combines the upbeat sunniness of The Shins with the personal, earnest folk of Okkervil River. The band also includes eclectic instrumentation--there's a banjo, dulcimer, vibraphone, upright bass, trumpet and harmonium.

If feel-good, organic indie rock is your thing, this is your band.
