1. ENJOY A MAGIC STREAM
Not the outdoor kind. (Still a little chilly.) Boise band Magic Sword will be streamed live March 13 from a SXSW Interactive launch party for ”Hotline Miami 2” Wrong Number.” The song below is on the game’s soundtrack. Watch the band live at 9:30 p.m. right here.
2. BE A THUG
Bone Thugs-N-Harmony are lovin’ Garden City. The group — with all five members — will make its third appearance at the Revolution Center when it plays on March 14. You’ll hear Bone Thugs perform their entire zillion-selling “E. 1999 Eternal” album, along with other hits. [Tickets]
3. MAKE IT A SLAM DUNK WEEKEND
Yeah, the Idaho Stampede are bad — 6 wins, 33 losses bad. But they have a legitimate chance to snag a win or two this weekend. Really! The Stampede take on the Los Angeles D-Fenders, who have 12 wins, 29 losses. Go see some high-flying NBA Development League action March 13 and 14 at CenturyLink Arena. [Tickets]
4. GET CHRIS-TENED
Well, shucks. Comedian Christopher Titus seems to prefer performing across the alley from Boise’s actual comedy club. Is he too big of a draw to do that smaller room? Find out for yourself by attending his show March 13 at the 999-capacity Knitting Factory. [Tickets]
5. GO TO MADRID
With Treefort Music Fest around the corner, now’s the time to get into indie-band mode. Kick things off early with SXSW alum New Madrid, which will perform March 13 at Neurolux. [More]
