1. TAKE ME TO CHURCH
Here's a photo gallery from last night's Eric Church concert.
Country singer Eric Church will rock Taco Bell Arena on Jan. 30. [Tickets] He’s bringing a rather unusual opening act: Halestorm, which essentially amounts to a modern-day Lita Ford. The big question for you, country fan: Will you get off?
Never miss a local story.
2. SPOIL THE KIDS ON SATURDAY
Yo Gabba Gabba characters are a highlight of this year’s Canyon County Kids Expo (Jan. 31, Ford Idaho Center). Rather hang in Boise? Check out “Jim Henson’s Dinosaur Train: Buddy’s Big Adventure” on Jan. 31 at the Morrison Center. [Tickets]
3. GROW INDIE WINGS
With its soft, slowly unwinding sonic daydreams, Portland band Mimicking Birds wowed Treefort festivalgoers and Modest Mouse concert fans alike last year. So it’s time for a headlining gig June 30 at Neurolux. Check out the video below to find out how mastermind Nate Lacy got his band signed by Isaac Brock of Modest Mouse.
5. STEP TO IT, BRO
Love Skrillex? Want to chug a few Jager bombs and spaz to bro-step? Join the bouncing throng that will exorcise/exercise demons at Zomboy’s show Jan. 31 at the Revolution Center. The British producer/DJ is gonna try to make heads explode. [Tickets]
