Again this year we are blessed with the Treefort Music Festival. Great bands migrate north from the warmth of Austin, Texas and will breeze into town to warm up our city March 20-24.
If you didn’t go last year, I’ll offer some words of wisdom–or what I’m proclaiming to be wisdom. Go to Treefort, indulge yourself. Attending Treefort is like being the first one down the mountain after a fresh snowfall. It’s like being the first water skier on a glassy lake, carving beautiful rooster tails. It is primo. The indie music festival South by Southwest is an aging monster, now in its twenty seventh year. Boise’s own Treefort is your chance to catch a festival in its youth. My advice: be at Treefort when it’s young, instead of looking back and wishing you were there at the beginning. The Modern Hotel still has a few rooms in the belly of the beast, the heart of the action, the hub, baby! Call the Modern Hotel for details.
The Modern Hotel is perfectly located in the heart of Tree Fort Music Festival country in downtown Boise. It is a stumble away from three of the top Tree Fort music venues–across the street from the Linen Building, around the corner from the Neurolux and three blocks from the Main Stage. This hotel package includes four days of concerts, along with other music happenings. Each package includes two general admission tickets to the festival for all four days, two “keep that music playing” pig lighters from the Modern and a “Welcome to the Festival, friend” drink voucher at the Modern Bar a, $20 value.
Packages are limited to guests who book all three nights, so book early to get in on the deal.
Dang gina, this year stresses me out. I’m ambivalent about snow and cold. But this just isn’t right. NO SNOW. And it didn’t come until well after Elvis’s birthday on the 8 of January. I hate it. It makes me sad and anxious. It dominates my conversations. “I really wish it would snow” I’d say to a guest, and they’d say, “Do you usually get a lot of snow in Boise?” I blather back about how we get a little snow in the Treasure Valley, but it usually goes away fast and stays in the mountains. Others would pop into the conversation and digress into a “I remember back in 82” kind of competition.
But now the snow is here. Yeah! Snow, snow, snow! The lifts are running and I’m in the mood to eat chef Davids’ wonderful soup and rejoice! Then follow it up with delicious warming beverage in the Modern Bar.
Now finally our guests can enjoy the Stay and Play package to their heart’s content. And what’s more we’ll make the deal sweeter!
If you participate in the Stay and Play promotion your rate for a queen room is $80 and $90 for a king or a room with 2 queen beds. All rooms are based on double occupancy and subject to availability.
Here’s the scpop on the ski package:
- Second ticket must be of equal or lesser value.
- No blackout periods.
- One lift ticket voucher per guest, per night of stay in Boise.
- Lift tickets valid during time of stay only.
- Mention the “Stay and Play” offer when placing reservation.
- Split-day offer: Single guest purchases a ticket on 1st day, get FREE ticket on 2nd day (within “dates of stay” stamped/marked on the voucher)
Here is swishing to see you soon.
