We are excited to announce our coverage of Boise's annual Treefort Fest this March 23-27! With the second round of artists released today we could not be more pumped to see dozens of amazing musicians.
Several minutes pass while Destruction Unit's amplified noise boils and reaches a deafening pitch, and then, the band breaks into the opening song without warning.

Eagerly anticipating his set at Fun Fun Fun Fest, Mikal Cronin took a second to share some insight about playing a big festival versus a small venue, and how he can't wait to see his buddies Fuzz play next weekend.

Living up to their name, Fuzz draws from heavy, caustic, fuzz pedal-worshiping and psychedelic acts of the past to heave forth an impressive 14-song double album made for headbanging and the cultivation of thick as cement darkness.
Unbeknownst to most, Boise, ID has a music scene bursting at the seams—the Potato State can be pretty hardcore.

Oh Lolipop Records! Amadeus finds itself constantly drawing from the eclectic Los Angeles label to provide the soundtrack for every mood we find ourselves in with their range of up and coming songsmiths. So it comes as no surprise that Lolipop has helped spawn our latest music obsession: Drinking Flowers’ new EP, Shadow Show.
