Who is gonna make it? We’ll find out in the long run. But if you’re an Eagles fan, you’d be a fool not to head to The Village at Meridian tonight for this free “Rock the Village” concert. Tragically, the Eagles are gone after the death of Glenn Frey. But you can enjoy the group’s songs and reminisce with Colorado-based tribute band The Long Run. These guys are serious. When it comes to replicating The Eagles, it’s all about the vocals. The group even has a singing drummer, a la Don Henley. P.S. Can’t make it to The Village? Check out Hotel California, another Eagles tribute act, on Nov. 17 at Nampa Civic Center.
This redhead ain’t no stranger. Willie Nelson will make his third visit to the Treasure Valley in four years when he strums classic country outside the Idaho Botanical Garden. Eighty-three or not, he’s on the road again with his musical “Family” helping him perform favorites such as “Whiskey River,” “Good Hearted Woman” and “Mamas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys.” If you’ve never managed to see him, missing this would be crazy, if not always on your mind.
David F. Sandberg’s excellent horror flick “Lights Out” is a film about common fears and universal phobias; about things that go bump in the night, and exist only in the dark. Built on a clever premise, the film is executed seamlessly. It’s the best expression of a low-budget horror flick: resourceful and smart, where the most charismatic character is the ghoul itself. At a lightning quick 81 minutes, Sandberg creates a thoughtful and very scary world in “Lights Out,” a spooky tale about what happens when the demons in your head come out to play.
