The weird runs deep with Boise twangsters Hokum Hi-Flyers. Genre terms like "Americana" and "old-timey" don't quite describe the cacophonous, festive Hi-Flyer sound.
While the music evokes a bygone era, the subjects of the band's songs edge toward the shadows, with themes of murder, sin, redemption and booze. It's all about tapping toes to tunes from days long past.
The Hi-Flyers will bring their banjo, guitar, fiddle and upright bass and set up outside Flying M Coffeegarage in Nampa on Saturday, June 2 for a hootenanny. The Coffeegarage has nixed indoor concerts, so the band is taking the party to the parking lot.
When dancing up a storm works up a mighty hunger, turn to B-Town Bistro food truck, Spoonthumb Ice Cream and PreFunk for solace.
