When local bands have a show coming up at Knitting Factory, they often say the same thing: "We're excited to be playing the big stage." Playing the big stage means a taste of what many of them hope they'll soon be tasting in large quantities: bigger stages in bigger cities. Beloved local rock trio Low-fi is headed toward a bellyful of big stages after having scooped up some awards, getting tunes on TV (The Big C, One Tree Hill) and lots of touring.
Playing the big stage here at home is cool because ticket prices are never more than $6, they aren't relegated to off nights--Sundays or Mondays--and the headliners get to bring their musical friends along to the lofty heights.
This Friday, Low-fi will be joined by Boise bands 57 Heavy, New Transit, A Seasonal Disguise (who have a beautiful new EP, Tickle Arms, out now) and Boise Rock School. See them now because they seem to be headed to a bellyful of fame.
