Tartufi, May 30, VAC

by

Tartufi is San Francisco's version of Finn Riggins. Both bands tour relentlessly, strive to give back to the artistic communities around them and are comprised of some damn nice folks. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that Tartufi and Finn Riggins frequently share a bill (and hopefully a few beers) on their painstakingly long tour stretches.

Consisting of multi-instrumentalists Lynne Angel and Brian Gorman, Tartufi has been tearing up the indie music scene for nearly 10 years. Angel and Gorman build it up then let it all come crashing down with math rock-y looping percussion and layered vocal harmonies. The duo's latest release is a 26-minute-long "epic indie rock journey" titled The Goodwill of the Scar, which features one long track, "The Butterless Man."

Tartufi heads back to Idaho for a special Memorial Day weekend appearance at Ranch Fest, Finn Riggins' welcome home, two-day throwdown outside of Stanley. But if you don't feel like hauling your caboose out to Stanley, you can also catch Tartufi at Visual Arts Collective on Sunday, May 30, with The Don'ts, Screaming Females and Low-fi.

Sunday, May 30, 8 p.m., $5, Visual Arts Collective, 3638 Osage St., Garden City, 208-424-8297, visualartscollective.com.
