Alive After Five: lo-fi

The Grove Plaza, July 3


In the days surrounding the Fourth of July, Boise drains. People head to the lake or the mountains, but if there's a reason to stick around, it's Boise band lo-fi's show at the Alive After Five stage. Its hit, "Where You Are," was featured on One Tree Hill, and perfectly captures the slow, pastoral pace of early summer. "Is the sun still shining where you are?" calls Todd Sloan into a sunset of strumming guitars—and the answer is yes. The band has been on the rise for years, touring across the west, but on Wednesday, July 3, it will hit the Grove Plaza with its mix of folk, progressive rock and even funk, all in advance of the release of its next album, Mindset, drops this winter. Joining the band will be opener Heather Meuleman strumming folk and Dan Hayward singing the National Anthem with bass trombone accompaniment. Bring along a blanket or chair for a screening of Independence Day at Payette Brewing after the show—admission is $10.
