Boise has a gravitational pull on some bands. Tours start and end here, CDs are released here and a few bands return so regularly, they're mistaken for local acts.
Even though Pickwick is barely two years old, with appearances at the 2012 and 2013 Treefort Music Fests, as well as a return to Boise for Alive After Five in 2013, the six-man band is firmly on our radar. Fortunately, the bluesy neo-soul-slinging Pickwick hails from neighboring Washington, meaning they're likely to land in Boise more often. Unfortunately, the band's 2013 debut release, Can't Talk Medicine, is 40-plus minutes of fabulous which, combined with a dynamic live show, means Pickwick's star will continue to rise. Hopefully our pull is strong enough to keep them coming back.
