Boise’s annual Treefort Music Fest isn’t until late March, but who better to celebrate the upcoming music season with than The Thermals? These Treefort veterans, who hail from Portland, have turned youthful frustration and angst into something way-too-fun to fit into the socially-conscious subsection of pop-punk. Most important (for a party, anyway), you will be able to swing, bounce, mosh, head-bang or sway to this high-energy three-person crew.
8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 6, El Korah Shrine, 1118 W. Idaho St., Boise, $10. Tickets are half off for people with a Treefort pass. eventbrite.com
