Lucy Dacus performs at Boise State Public Radio's Prefort event on Wednesday before the 2016 Treefort Music Festival in Boise.

Add these suggestions from Michael Deeds and Dana Oland to your list:

Guitar power: San Francisco garage-rockers Thee Oh Sees — who mine psychedelia, punk and noise-pop influences from decades back to the 1960s — are drawing some of the most excitement among Treefort devotees. Don’t expect to see them in Boise again soon. They play at 11:45 p.m. at El Korah Shrine, 1118 W. Idaho St.

Spooky folk: Prefer the dark side of music? It might be oversimplification to say L.A.-based singer-songwriter Chelsea Wolfe makes folk music for the metal crowd, but, well, she does. She performs at 10:15 p.m. at the Knitting Factory, 416 S. 9th St.

Storyfort: Dish with local reporters, including the Statesman’s Anna Webb and Bill Dentzer, on “Viral Idaho,” a look at stories ranging from the Steunenberg Trial in 1905 to the Larry Craig scandal in 2007. It’s at 1 p.m. at The Linen Building, 1402 W. Grove St. Free and open to the public, with preference to Treefort pass holders.

LED’s next project: The musicians and dancers of Boise’s LED will show you “This Way to the Egress,” featuring film projections and other multimedia elements. This performance launches the group into a year of developing this as its next major project. It’s at 10:30 p.m. at The Rose Room, 718 W. Idaho St.

I still need tickets! A single-day festivalwide pass will run you $79-89, or $179 for every day. When capacity allows, individual venues will let you in for $10 to $30. Visit treefortmusicfest.com or visit the box office (at the Owyhee).
