I don't care - as long as the Knitting Factory has nothing to do with the whole thing, I'm happy.

Hmm I haven't heard of any of those bands. Anybody have some thoughts in them?

delicate steve are pretty cool but I only saw them live so no idea of albums worth checking out
I've heard a few pictureplane songs that are pretty great as well

Cave Singers and Maldives are seattle institutions but I think both are pretty boring

Sallie Ford shouldn't be missed. Strong pipes that female has.

Thanks for the info. It's nice that someone has stepped up to show others that Boise can be a viable tour stop from Seattle/Portland to Salt Lake and vice-versa. Often times, bands stay here on their off-day or just see it as another place to fill up on gas.
