Three Texas siblings are working on world domination. On the side, they're making acid rock under the name "The Boleys." They'll hit Boise's Olympic venue Friday, July 12, starting at 8 p.m. The band invites showcomers to nuke their brains while the three "fill the room with all sorts of vibrations." The crunchy, overdriven guitars lay the foundation for The Boleys' fast-paced, in-your-face rock 'n roll. The Boleys are joined by fellow Austin, Texas, rockers Modular Sun, a synth-laden troupe of four creating trippy, energetic rock reminiscent of some of the late '60s psych rock. Turning local, Boise's The Seatopians and Empty Suits will open up the night. The Seatopians make instrumental surf rock to the tone of the late, great Dick Dale. Things get considerably more punk with Empty Suits, creating punchy, short songs that could have been pulled from a Tony Hawk video game soundtrack.
With Modular Sun, The Seatopians, and Empty Suits. 8 p.m. $8. The Olympic, 1009 W. Main St., Boise, 208-342-0176, theolympicboise.com.
