Across town at The District, young and old alike stayed warm as they crowded together to see high-schoolers Calico perform smart arrangements and sweet melodies in a spot-on set.
One of the big draws of Treefort each year is Built to Spill at El Korah Shrine, and this year is no exception as evidenced by the waiting line that stretched nearly a city block. But over at Neurolux, it was a warm, sensory sauna inside as the gritty psychedelic rock sounds of Pontiak washed over the packed crowd and a video of abstract images played across the Virginia-based Carney brothers. Last time they were in town, Pontiak played Linen Building and nearly blew the rafters off the high ceilings. The trio delivered again and, if possible, was even better this time around. Here's hoping Pontiak doesn't wait until 2015 to come back to Boise.
