Built to Spill Will Play a Benefit Show at Armstrong Woods

Everybody loves a show that’s both intimate and full of the smells of trees, right? Built to Spill, the 26-year-old Boise trio whose sound came to define early 2000s indie-rock, will play Guerneville’s Redwood Forest Theater on Sunday, Sept. 16 — with a yet-to-be-announced special guest.

A Noise Pop presentation, it’s a benefit for Save the Redwoods League and Stewards of the Coast and Redwoods — and as the 1930s venue only holds so many people on those chevroned wooden benches lightly dusted with detritus from all the Sequoia sempervirens, it’s going to be quite the five-hour experience. Tickets ($40-$75) went on sale today at noon.

It falls on day after the park’s Old Grove Festival, which is the only other public, ticketed event the amphitheater hosts. Like a naturally occurring house of worship, it’s a great site to hear Doug Martsch, Steve Gere, and Jason Albertini perform songs like “Else,” “Three Years Ago Today,” and “Strange” (or so we can hope). The 200,000 acres of enormous trees and the mystical, beautiful ecosystems they create need your help!

Built to Spill (and a special guest), Sunday, Sept. 16, 4-9 p.m., at Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve, Guerneville, $40-$75, tickets.
