Michael Deeds: 5 Things You Should Do This Weekend in Boise

1. FLEX YOUR PARTY MUSCLE

Organizers are flying in DJs TJR and John Dahlback to get things crackin’ at the second annual BodyBuilding.com Expo Afterparty. That means crazy dancing, lasers, confetti, video walls, etc., Saturday night at the Revolution Center. (And a possible headache for you Sunday if you aren’t careful.) [More]


2. SPICE IT UP

For Latin-infused good times, you’ll be hard pressed to top the Salsa Idaho Festival on Saturday. They’ll even teach you how to dance. [More] (Speaking of topping things, WinCo is now carrying the best freaking grocery-store salsa in the western world: Maria’s. Thank me later with a bag of chips.)


3. ROCK FOR A DECADE

Alt-metal band 10 Years actually has been around since 1999, but that doesn’t mean they won’t sound fresh to fans tonight at the Knitting Factory. [More] Meanwhile, Boise band Built To Spill — aka 23 years — plays tonight and Saturday at the Crazy Horse. [More]


4. HEAD FOR AFRICA

Saturday at the Mardi Gras Ballroom will be a night of African food, entertainment and culture, including a fashion show. Miss Africa Idaho will even be there. [More]


5. GO ON HOLIDAY

Austin, Texas-based psych-dub trio Holiday Mountain are all over the map musically, but they’ll be right square in the middle of the Boise map Saturday at Neurolux. [More]
