Introducing Über Tuesdays!

Uber Tuesdays is a new concert series that will be going down at the Visual Arts Collective appropriately on every Tuesday.  The idea behind Uber Tuesdays is to provide the Boise music scene with a consistent helping of live music, providing a chance for touring bands to squeeze Boise into their schedules.  This will also provide a place for members of the up-and-coming Boise music scene to showcase their skillz on a regular basis.  The series is presented by music blog Audio Milk and Radio Boise program Antler Crafts.  Payette Brewing Co. will be there pouring $2 microbrews... I repeat $2 microbrews.  Food will also be available from Pie Hole and Archie's Place.  It's gonna be uber cool and we hope to see you there!

This will also be the official release party of The C.O.T. Mixtape Volume I.  Those in attendance will have a chance to win a free download.
Here's a preview of what you will be seeing/hearing:

You can listen to and download Art Fads album "Vatos" here

Payette Brewing Co. needs to make this a reality.

Time to bust out the SHADES

With the summer solstice just around the corner, we feel there is no better time to introduce you to Boise band, Shades.  The chilled out, experimental pop of Shades sounds as if it were filtered through the condensation on your ice-cold beer bottle (or beverage of choice).  "Now your stuck in my head, and you can't get out," a line from the song "Ghostlike," pretty much sums up the effect of all four of the songs Shades has released so far.  From what it sounds like, these guys are still working on the details of their live show setup, but seem to have no problem pumping out good music.  In addition, one can download all four tracks from their Sound Cloud page.  These tracks fit very nicely onto any "Chillin' at the pool/Boatin'/BBQ/Boozin' on the patio" playlists you may make in the near future.  Enjoy!
