Summerfield Concerts

May-August 2016, Memorial Stadium

by

This summer, Memorial Stadium, home to the Boise Hawks, will play host to a new concert series that is sure to... hit a homerun.

It starts Monday, May 30, with Leon Bridges (above), whose Coming Home (Columbia, 2015) was nominated for Best R&B Album—he didn't win, but there's no shame in losing to D'Angelo's incredible Black Messiah (RCA, 2014). Andra Day opens the show.

On Tuesday, July 12, 40-somethings can feel 20-something again with a triple header: synth-pop acts OMD and Howard Jones open for rockers Barenaked Ladies.

The series wraps up with Los Angeles-based indie folk band Lord Huron, which has blown up since its 2012 debut Lonesome Dreams (Iamsound). Opening for Lord Huron is bluegrass-folk group Trampled By Turtles, known for playing at breakneck speed but whose seventh studio release Wild Animals (Banjodad Records, 2014) was called a "thoughtful, stately grower of a record" by NPR.
