“If you want to make it big, you’ve gotta go to Boise,” he said.
The band was in town on Sept. 8 to play at Neurolux. During its show, its sound could be best likened to the soundtrack of an indie film about self-discovery—or, as Ewald put it, "a less-intense rock band with a lot of words."
Slaughter Beach, Dog came through Boise on tour in support of its new album, Safe and Also No Fear. It's the band's third studio album, for which it cut its first music video, but two of its members had previously come through Boise in 2016 when they were members of Modern Baseball.
Back then, they played El Korah Shrine, but Ewald said swinging through Neurolux had been a checklist item for the band.
“A lot of the bands I like, I see online, [they] always come through Neurolux, so I was curious, and I’m glad that we’re here,” he said.
