Alive After Five isn’t the summer’s only free weekly music party. Try something different and check out Thursday Thunder, which happens at the Boise Spectrum. You’ll find seating, shade, specials, raffles for movie tickets and giveaways for gift certificates. Next week’s entertainer is Pilot Error, a Boise cover band with years of experience and an affinity for melodic classic rock. (Think “Renegade,” “Don’t Stop Believin’ ” and “Hotel California.”) The Boise Rescue Mission sets up at all concerts collecting clothes and donations for families in need. Full Thursday Thunder schedule: boisespectrumcenter.com.
6 p.m. July 21 (continues through Aug. 25), Boise Spectrum, 7709 W. Overland Road.
