The sun is out and the fountain is starting to bubble forth from the bricks of The Grove. That means the clock is ticking down until Boise's Alive After Five summer concert series starts up again on Wednesdays.
The series has featured local openers for the last few years, and it will continue that tradition in 2013, with one big exception: the roster of local opening acts will comprised of Boise-based artists that are participating in the Boise 150 Compilation project.
From a press release:
As all of these artists have contributed songs about Idaho, are great performers, and hail from Boise or the Treasure Valley, the writing was on the wall for their participation in the longstanding AA5 summer concert season.
This means that Go Listen Boise, the local music promotion group that selects the opening acts, will not be issuing a call to bands like it generally does around this time of year.
