Formed in Stockholm in 1972 ABBA was and still is the biggest hit band to ever come from Sweden. They had many successes together in their years. One of the biggest competitions was the Eurovision Song Contest in 1974 which they won. It was held at the Dome in Brighton, UK. This was the first time a musical group from Sweden had ever won the contest. Their winning song at the contest was Waterloo.
Concluding my series of Treefort photo galleries, here are pics from shows that happened from Friday-Sunday, including The Soil & the Sun, BOYS’ 2nd set of the Fest, From Indian Lakes, Caddywhompus and local band Pond People!
Other than Marmozets, the two other bands I saw at Treefort on Thursday, March 26 included BOYS, hailing from Missoula, Montana, and rising post-punk band Viet Cong. Here are some photo highlights from each show:
The best band I saw at Treefort was easily these guys, and I was anticipating as much. Hailing all the way across the ocean from West Yorkshire, UK, Marmozets delivered a loud and raucous live show that lived up to their recorded reputation. Here are some choice pics from their gig at The Shredder during Treefort:
Hello, ladies and gentleman it is I one again; Dr. Professor Rene. Today I am prescribing a heavy dose of trap and bass for the well being of all of you. This upcoming Wednesday (January 28th) Los Angeles producer RL Grime will be accompanied with Lunice and DJing at the Knitting Factory, a concert you should go to.
Tech N9ne made another stop in Boise to kick off the month of November. His show was on November 1st and it was a wet, cold and very dreary day. But Tech N9ne and his openers decide to bring the heat and killed it inside of the Revolution Concert House.
Tennis came to town and boy, they killed it. Every issue that I had with their newest album fell away as they performed tracks, both young and old, without any backing vocals or excess processing. The songs felt clearer and really showcase not only the group’s talent, but also their creative philosophies.
On September 27, 2014 the amazing band Glass Animals came to the Boise area to play a great show at the Neurolux. I was lucky enough to attend the concert along side the great John Armstrong. Here is the review for what we thought of the Glass Animals concert as well as our fondness of their opening act, Rome Fortune.
