In downtown Boise, studios and galleries often hold opening receptions to coincide with First Thursday when hundreds of citizens are strolling up and down the city sidewalks. Folks out for the evening are also treated to buskers (artists and musicians performing in public places like street corners) offering up additional entertainment. This First Thursday, after the galleries have turned off the lights and the street musicians have closed up their guitar cases, but you're just getting the party started, head over to Neurolux for what is hopefully the first of a series of gigs introducing sounds not commonly heard in and around our fair city.
This first First Thursday, you can chill to the groovy downtempo beats of the Terminal Bros. and then get a perfect example of dubstep with Evol G and Hecca. Dubstep is a bass heavy sub-genre of electronica, made popular in Southern London.
According to Pat Benolkin (one half of the Terminal Bros.), the idea of these musical First Thursdays is to provide a night of free music to "showcase the sounds Les Bois isn't receiving enough of. Dubstep, for example, is absolutely gigantic around the world right now, but I bet tons of people here have no clue ... this is where we come in."
