Live!

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.

Also at the show were Boise locals Transistor Send and touring group Pure Bathing Culture, who were both excellent.
