The mountain of bands is piling high at this year’s Treefort Music Fest.

Downtown Boise’s annual emerging-acts festival has unveiled its second round of acts — 98 more on top of the 90-plus already shared back in December. Treefort normally provides its concert lineup to fans in three staggered announcements.

Highlights of the latest revelation include Princess Nokia, Rapsody, Jamila Woods, Typhoon, Partner, Christopher Willits, The Regrettes, Low Cut Connie, Rituals of Mine, Big Dipper, The Russ Liquid Test, Sonny Smith, Jherek Bischoff and Selector Dub Narcotic. Local music historians also will be stoked to see a reunion of Boise band H-Hour. The groove-oriented group, which included drum smasher Tad Doyle, moved to Seattle in the late 1980s. That’s where Doyle picked up a guitar and started highly regarded grunge monstrosity TAD.

Notable names from the first Treefort announcement last month included George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, Galactic, The Suffers, Cindy Wilson of B-52’s fame, Andrew W.K. and Titus Andronicus.

Treefort is March 21-25 at various Downtown Boise venues. Tickets are available now, and it’s cheaper to buy early. Five-day general-admission wristbands are $175, but prices go up March 1.
