Best Local Band

Built to Spill

Readers' Picks

Not only are there more bands in town, the quality of music is at an all-time high. But Boise has long been home to accomplished musicians who put this city on the map—Built to Spill being one of the most famous. Formed in the early '90s, BTS continues to hold its own as Boise's premier rock export, still cutting albums and packing venues both near and far: hometown performances sell out and at Bumbershoot 2015, BTS commanded a sizable crowd on the festival's closing night.
