Okay, first of all, Treefort was tight.
We camped in our good friends' back yard all weekend and stayed surprisingly warm despite the rain.
Some highlights: Jonathan Richman (what a completely honest performer), Open Mike Eagle (who Mark and I never heard before but blew us away), AU (insanely tight and cool), Delicate Steve ("Maybe the only good 1.5 hour long guitar solo I've ever seen" - kent), Willy Vlautin (author of Motel Life, telling a really excellent road story about rural Nevada), Sun Blood Stories (SHREDDING OUR FACES), Mac Demarco (who's music I had never heard, but had a crazy fun live show with great stage presence), Jenny Don't and the Spurs (killing it in a small bar), and finally VCR (playing rockin' ass jam shit in an upscale fast food restaurant.)
Good job, Boise.
