Built to Spill to play at nonprofit collective

Bands normally perform in larger venues and arenas as they become more popular, which makes tonight’s Built to Spill concert at Dry River Collective unusual.

Frontman Doug Martsch contacted the nonprofit last year to schedule a concert after watching the documentary, “”Radical Resources: A Story of the Dry River Collective.””

The event will be held outside to accommodate the anticipated crowd. Given the cooler weather, dressing warmly is recommended. Dry River’s Web site suggests bringing a blanket if you want to sit, which might be better than standing around or dancing awkwardly.

Local quintet Doctor Dinosaur will kick off the night with its folk-inflected brand of Jurassic fun at 6:30 p.m. Swiss rock band and Built to Spill tour mate Disco Doom will also be performing.

This is an all-ages show with snacks and nonalcoholic beverages for sale. Tickets are $15-$20, cash only. As there are no advance tickets for sale, be sure to get there early and find a cozy spot to stay warm.
