Michael Deeds recommends
Sean Peabody: Friday through Sunday, Liquid. The Boise-based “Hawaiian comedian” will spread a little holiday cheer.
Hell’s Belles: Monday, Whiskey Jacques in Ketchum. Skiing Sun Valley all day then rocking to an all-female AC/DC cover band all night? Yes, please.
The Supersuckers: Thursday, Whiskey Jacques in Ketchum. Eddie Spaghetti and company will try to liven up their claim as “the greatest rock ’n’ roll band in the world.”
