Finn Riggins release “Benchwarmers” EP

Finn Riggins releases "Benchwarmers" EP

The Boise music scene has rightfully taken up a fair share of real estate on our site this spring with the emergence of Treefort Music Festival. As mentioned before, Treefort Festival Director Eric Gilbert has played a giant role in developing both the festival and the Boise music scene. Gilbert’s own band, Finn Riggins, released a new EP this past weekend for Record Store Day. Benchwarmers is out now on Tender Loving Empire. Having seen Finn Riggins live at both SXSW (photos below) and Treefort Festival (photos), you’d be mistaken to miss Riggins’ brand of energetic, intricate tuneage that’s been colloquialized as “math-pop”. Gilbert and bandmates Cameron Bouiss + Lisa Simpson have traveled the DIY route for years now and seem to have settled into their own skin and sounds with their confident new EP. Pick up Benchwarmers and check out their PNW live dates below.
