RECORD EXCHANGE SECOND CHANCE TREEFORT IN-STORE SETS!

Dating back to the inaugural Treefort Music Fest in 2012, live music has rocked The Record Exchange stage during the multi-day Downtown Boise music festival. For the 11th Treefort March 22-26, Idaho’s largest independent music store will host five straight days of Second Chance sets

The Record Exchange Treefort in-store slate covers a wide range of musical styles: Brazilian indie rock, teenage bedroom pop, cosmic garage rock, synthwave pop and kaleidoscopic psych-rock. True to the Second Chance spirit, the events are free, all ages and no festival pass is required to attend (but you should get one so you can be in on all the fun). 

The Record Exchange is open 10am-8pm daily during Treefort. The Record Exchange Gift Shop and Espresso Bar opens at 8:30am Wednesday-Friday.

STASH YOUR TREEFORT FEST PASS FOR THE NEW SEPTEMBER DATE! NEED A REFUND? READ BELOW.

Treefort Music Fest announced today that the festival has been postponed until September, but you can stash your pass and stay #TreefortReady for the new date (Sept. 23-27)!

As a Treefort partner and sponsor, we will be sure to share updates leading up to the festival, including Record Exchange in-store events. We had daily events planned and were in the process of announcing those this week when we got news of the postponement. We imagine some of those in-stores will still be happening as planned and new events will be added to the mix between now and September.

If you do need a refund for your pass purchased at The Record Exchange, you can email refunds@treefortmusicfest.com. Make sure you mention that your pass was purchased at The Record Exchange and they will take it from there.

We cannot provide you a refund at the store. You do not have to call/visit The Record Exchange to initiate your refund; simply use the email address above.

If you need to purchase a Treefort pass, we continue to sell 5-day, single-day, Main Stage and other passes, or browse and buy here from the comfort of your particular geo-coordinates. If you already have a pass, just hold onto it until September – you don’t need to replace it for a new one.

Thank you for your continued support of independent musicians, stores and festivals!

Love,
The Record Exchange team

JOYFUL NOISE TREEFORT SHOWCASE WITH KISHI BASHI, TALL TALL TREES, CJ BOYD SUNDAY, MARCH 26 (1-3PM)

The Record Exchange is hosting a Joyful Noise Treefort Showcase from 1-3pm Sunday, March 26, during Treefort Music Fest. As always, this Record Exchange in-store event is free and all ages — Treefort pass not required to attend. Treefort Music Fest runs March 22-26 and we have passes for sale at the store!

We’re partnering with one of our favorite independent labels to give you a taste of the Joyful Noise artists performing at Treefort. Hear live sets from:

Kishi Bashi

Tall Tall Trees

CJ Boyd

Kishi Bashi is the pseudonym for violin virtuoso K Ishibashi. Having recorded, toured, and collaborated with diverse artists such as Regina Spektor, Sondre Lerche, and of Montreal, Kishi Bashi released his first full-length album 151a via Joyful Noise in 2012, which received high praise and the title of NPR’s “Best New Artist Of The Year”. K’s follow-up album Lighght expanded his palette to include more diverse and nuanced instrumentation, flirting with Eastern-tinged arrangements, Philip Glass inspired improvisations, and 70s prog.

Kishi Bashi’s third studio album, Sonderlust, was released on September 16, 2016. With the help of producer Chris Taylor (Grizzly Bear), engineer Pat Dillet (Angelique Kidjo, David Byrne) and drummer Matt Chamberlain (Morrissey, Fiona Apple, of Montreal), Kishi Bashi has created his most personal and artistically adventurous work to date.

The man behind Tall Tall Trees is Mike Savino, a pioneer in the world of experimental and psychedelic banjo music. If you’ve seen Kishi Bashi live over the last several years, chances are you’ve already seen this insane banjo virtuoso playing in K’s band, and perhaps opening the show. Often performing solo, Savino’s modern take on the one-man band involves running his homemade instrument, dubbed the “Banjotron 5000,” through a slab of effects and loopers, bowing, drumming and strumming out multi-textured arrangements to support his lyrically driven songs.

Bassist, composer, vagabond, CJ Boyd uses low-end loops and voices in order to try and stop time. On perpetual tour since March 2008, movement and stasis are both at the center of his music. Though solo performance takes up the bulk of his time and effort, he also plays in the bands Desert Center, Kurva Choir, Rhonya, and Move. His non-stop travels between North America and Europe have been propelled by vans, cars, trains, buses, planes, and boats, but most of all a commitment to ceaseless discovery and re-invention. His oceanic sounds provide a home for the homeless and journeys to the homebound.
