Scott Bromiley of the Australian group The John Steel Singers was elated to be a part of the weekend-long festival in downtown Boise. With a thick kiwi accent, Bromiley belted out huge rock-inspired numbers to the faithful crowd.

But it was Oakland, Calif., band Mwahaha that stole the show. Its blend of traditional rock 'n' roll and new-age electronica created tracks that droned into perpetuity.
