[Spotlight] Treefort 2014 – We Are Fucking So Excited You Guys

treefort_2013_benlindbloomTreefort starts TOMORROW & you know how we love Treefort. We’ll be here, bringing you every moment (that we can remember). Here’s what we are biting our nails excited about (which means you should be excited about them too.):

Catie:

Bad90s / I fucking love horses.

Chastity Belt / Hello.

Frugal Father / How is this at the same time as Chastity Belt I ask. I will be in two places at once, thank you.

Yvette / Saw these jerks in Brooklyn this year. They are SO loud.

Hip Hatchet / The blog I have the biggest crush on has the biggest crush on him, so …

Travis:

Magic Sword / Never seen dis cat live, but I bet the show is pretty-kitty. To quote past-Travis, “If [Magic Sword] doesn’t prepare you to strap in to that goddamn jump-seat and take off towards the untrod surface of Mars and the promise of extra-terrestrial danger I don’t know what will — It’s like you’re fucking immune to being badass.” Yup.

Mount Eerie / Because “take-away-my-Washington-State-Driver’s-License,” I haven’t seen Phil Elverum live. Ever. Lo-fi ghost-thrash from creepy ass coastal town Anacortes? It doesn’t get much better than this, folks.

Sun Blood Stories / Possibly purely out of affection for music that drips with acid-rain and fuzzy-blues riffing, I’ve wanted to see this Idaho-based band live since first aural acquainting.

Dirty Moogs / My older brother Will is in this band and rocks a disco-space suit much better than your brother can. That in itself should be enough to convince you spineless sheep to go, but the fact that they’re one of the best live shows around (including 3D laser/drug-inducing projections, Daft Punk-esque garb, and enough analog 8-bit jams for the biggest/best nerds out there) is just the icing on the cake.


Note: There are over 90 tracks of white-dude funk infused in to this 4:49 cosmic space-jam. Keep that in mind.

Meat Market / Washington weather makes me yearn for Jort season and smaller-than-necessary skateboards. Meat Market is those two things embodied. Any chance to catch California-rock rays in the Northwest must be taken, ignore this fact and die alone, un-tan.

BLVRRED VISION / Call me a sucker for Bois-Electro (and the heir to future fame for naming this movement henceforth), but with equal parts Cure, SALEM, and Com Truise these dudes have mixed up a special sauce.
