Slideshow: Boise Bands Kill it at Showcase


Wednesday night, a handful of Boise bands took to the stage at SXSW for a Boise showcase. As reported by BW's New Media Czar Josh Gross, who's on the scene:

A capacity crowd packed into the Independent Film Channel's Vice Bar on Austin's famed Sixth Street strip Wednesday night to see some of Boise's best bands rock their hearts out.

More than 200 were through the door when Hillfolk Noir took the stage at 7 p.m., and they just kept coming, packing in tighter and tighter until there was prescious little room to move, even in the club's two balconies. After Hillfolk Noir's opening set, Le Fleur, The Brett Netson Band, Finn Riggins, Youth Lagoon and Built to Spill took turns kicking in the audience's ears.
