Archaeology isn't always about dusty artifacts. In this case, Archeology [sic] is a Portland, Ore.-based folk-rock group whose founding members, Jason Davis and Daniel Walker, bonded over their love of archaeology. After all, they met on a dig. They also shared similar childhoods. Both Davis and Walker have evangelical fathers and both re-thought religion as adults. Though the band has Northwest roots and frequently writes songs about their beloved city of Portland, their layered vocals have universal appeal.
Archeology has embarked on two national tours and recently performed at Musicfest Northwest. In the past, they've played along acts such as Frightened Rabbit, The Fling, Lakes and local favorite Finn Riggins. Now Archeology will add Boise's Red Room to their list of tour stops, where they will perform with Storie Grubb and the Holy Wars and A Seasonal Disguise.
