Final Treefort Music Fest Video Is Here, Along With A Cameo From Boise's Mayor
The final round of Treefort Music Fest acts were announced today. Indie rock band The Walkmen tops the list, joining Animal Collective and Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings as mainstage headliners. The eclectic final group of artists include enigmatic rapper Brother Ali, the orchestral band Typhoon, and emerging local acts like Grandma Kelsey. These groups will perform with about 250 others during the March 21-24 festival.
Today's announcement also included news that local Payette Brewing Company will debut a new wheat ale, specifically for the March event.
As with the previous three announcements for Treefort, organizers also released a video. This final installment features a cameo performance by Boise's mayor, Dave Bieter. A helmeted Mayor Bieter waves to the camera from his bike around the minute-and-a-half mark.
