Alive After Five Summer Concert Series
Brings a Great Mix of Artists to the
June Line-Up
May 7, 2018

        Alive After Five, Presented by Delta Air Lines, returns June 6 to the beautiful Grove Plaza in the heart of Downtown Boise. 2018 marks the 32nd year the Downtown Boise Association has produced the free summer concert series, a celebration of summer and great music that brings a lineup of fun and fresh talent every Wednesday, June through August.

June 6 -      Headliner: To Be Announced
                    Opener: TBA    

June 13 -    Headliner: Ivory Deville
                    Opener: TBA

        About Ivory Deville: Los Angeles band Ivory Deville produces an uncommon swagger and juxtaposition of sound that hits its stride at the intersection of honky tonk, glam rock, and mid-century rock and roll. Born out of the raucous beer joints and restless bones of the Plains, and warmly branded by soaring female harmonies from the California coast, Ivory Deville is an authentic roadhouse band for our time.
June 20 -    Headliner: Ghost of Paul Revere
                    Opener: TBA

         About Ghost of Paul Revere:  The Boston Globe said of the Ghost of Paul Revere, "The Maine-grown, foot-stompin' holler-folk quartet create the type of music for which festivals are made." Band members call their music "holler folk," not because it involves a lot of hollering, but because it invokes the rich communal tradition of field hollers, with their call-and-response melodies, sing-along hooks, and densely layered harmonies. That sense of musical camaraderie is essential to everything The Ghost of Paul Revere does, and nowhere is it more evident than their sophomore album released just last fall, ' Monarch'.

June 27 -     Headliner: Greyhounds
                     Opener: TBA

        About Greyhounds:  Greyhounds are an American musical duo from Austin, Texas, consisting of keyboardist Anthony Farrell and guitarist Andrew Trube; both members share singing and songwriting duties. The duo's new release is Cheyenne Valley Drive, their third album, and what Glide magazine calls a tribute to Memphis soul.

July 4 (Idaho Day) -   Headliner: Lounge on Fire
                                     Opener: TBA

        About Lounge on Fire: Lounge on Fire is an independent alternative rock band formed in Boise, Idaho in 2013. Their sound draws on an eclectic blend of influences that blur the lines between rock, soul, jazz, latin, disco, hip hop, and funk. Rapid and percussive vocals often combine with dark, seductive grooves and a boisterous fanfare of wind instruments to create a unique fusion that fans of Modest Mouse, Gogol Bordello, and Cake would enjoy.

Join us on the Fourth of July for Alive After Five's Idaho Day, showcasing Idaho bands and vendors. Details about the evening and connection to the city-wide Fourth of July celebration will be released in the coming weeks.

Alive After Five runs for 13 weeks, from June 6 through August 29, 2018. Music starts approximately 5:00 pm and wraps up by 8:00 pm. Fans are encouraged to come downtown early to shop and stay late to enjoy Idaho's best dining and nightlife.

Alive After Five is produced by the Downtown Boise Association with support from the Capital City Development Corporation. To keep the event free for fans, the DBA relies on the support of sponsors who understand the importance of building both business and community through great events in a dynamic downtown.

Sponsors (presented below), we couldn't do it without you! Fans, see you June 6!

The remaining July and August music lineups will be announced in the coming weeks.
