- Lake Street Dive vocalist Rachael Price singing at the Wednesday, Aug. 7, show at Boise's Egyptian Theatre.
Despite cramped spaces and a need to keep the aisles clear, fans at Lake Street Dive couldn't help but get up and move during the show at Boise's Egyptian Theatre.
The Boston group was joined by Yola, a folk singer from across the pond in Bristol, United Kingdom, for a sold out show the evening of Aug. 7.
Lake Street Dive is touring on its newest album, Free Yourself Up, a follow-up to its EP Freak Yourself Out. Both releases dropped in 2018.
The band's oeuvre is a constant back and forth of tempos, styles and genres. Many songs are energetic and soulful, while others are quiet and folksy. No matter the style, vocalist Rachael Price's piercing voice is a constant through every song.
The band played through a number of old and new songs, ending on the hit song from the newest record, "Good Kisser."

- Yola came all the way to Boise from Bristol, UK. She is touring on her new album, Walk through Fire.
While Lake Street Drive put on a crowd-pleasing show, it was initially hard to tell who was there for which performance.
Opening the show, Yola told the crowd while Boise is a beautiful place but it feels like a sauna.
Yola, while a much different volume than Lake Street Drive, was just as captivating.
She took the time to explain most of her songs before she performed. One of them was a story of accidentally setting herself on fire, and realizing if she can deal with the sexism, racism and "all of the things that suck in life" in her early upbringing, she can surely put herself out. That song, "Walk Through Fire" is the title track of her latest record.
