Armchair Boogie

The Olympic, Tuesday, Feb. 5


The song "Movin Out of the City" is a perfect capsule for Armchair Boogie: Think classic bluegrass, with a boatload of banjo and lyrics about ditching the big city for the charms of country living. Out of the heartland of Wisconsin, where its sound was honed on a front porch facing Main Street (seriously), the four-piece has been delivering folk licks since 2014. If you're a fan of Boise's Hillfolk Noir or Fall Creek String Band, odds are it would be a good decision to stop by The Olympic on Tuesday, Feb. 5, and give Armchair Boogie a try. And if that's not a reliable enough weathervane, try this: On the band's website, each member is identified in part by his favorite beer.
