It's often fun to see a band in a not-so-typical setting. It takes the band out of its comfort zone, which can result in a unique performance. Catching Arizona punk-ska rockers Authority Zero at Reef in Downtown Boise fits the bill.

Formed in 1994, the group draws influences from various directions, but being loud and fast is generally part of the equation. Think Warped Tour, not tiki bar. Besides, at Reef, you can always escape to that upstairs patio for a brief sonic reprieve and cool night air.

Also on the bill: reggae-digging Baltimore punks Ballyhoo and Santa Barbara, Calif.-based Versus the World.
