Since the early 1990's Boise-based indie rock godfathers Built to Spill have been one of the genre's most influential artists. Indie bands such as Modest Mouse and Death Cab for Cutie have gone on record as saying Built to Spill was their primary influence when starting their band. BTS have released seven albums to much critical and fan fame, continuously playing sold out worldwide tours and landing in headlining spots on most of the nation's top festival tours over the past decade.
Their albums "Perfect From Now On" and "Keep It Like A Secret" have cemented a place for them in the indie rock hall of fame. But beyond their extensive success w/ Warner Bros Records, BTS has always been best known for their highly emotive live shows. Lead singer and guitarist Doug Martsch is known to have complete command over the guitar, pioneering the use of multiple layered guitar lines by using live guitar-looping techniques. His tight band constantly rediscover their songs live, often changing their form and structures on a nightly basis to create a very spontaneous and in-the-moment live experience.
The Sound N Vision Foundation crew hosted Built to Spill at Visalia's Fox Theatre awhile back, selling over 800 tickets to the event. This time we wanted the band to play a more intimate show, so we chose the Cellar Door. For this reason, we know this one is going to be a sell out. It's a big honor to host a band that I've loved for many years. A band that continues to influence many of my favorite artists.
Victoria, Canada band Slam Dunk will deliver a high-energy psych-pop-rock performance playing the middle slot.
Richmond, Virginia's The Warm Hair will bring it heavy, kicking off the night.
