Last Saturday marked Day Two in the inaugural weekend-long garage-rock fest, Ziesta.
At around noon, the thump of live music and the smell of grilled chorizo began wafting from the backyard of a house behind the Boise Depot. As the afternoon progressed, a number of shorts-clad fans and families grabbed patches of shady lawn and listened to jams from Thee Headliners, La Knots, Low-Fi, Sallie Ford and the Sound Outside and Pure Country Gold.
BW stopped by in time to catch Portland, Ore.'s throwback soul/country/blues act Sallie Ford and the Sound Outside and the two-piece garage punk outfit Pure Country Gold, also from Portland. About three free kalimotxos deep, digging our toes into the green grass and listening to Sallie Ford cover Canned Heat's "Going up the Country," we had an epiphany. Rad shit like this needs to happen every weekend. Seriously, somebody get on it.
