1. BUST A MYTH

For more than a decade, Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman have built things, blown things up, entertained us and taught us. But it’s time to bid farewell: Starting in January, the final season of the long-running Discovery Channel series “MythBusters” will air. Boise fans will have the opportunity to say goodbye in person when the “MythBusters” come to the Morrison Center on Sunday for their “Jamie and Adam Unleashed” tour. Only a handful of tickets remained when this was posted. [Tickets]


2. SUPPORT IDAHO MUSIC

Donnelly-raised singer-songwriter Jeff Crosby is back in Boise for a couple of months before he moves to Nashville. He’s celebrating the release of his new album, “Waking Days,” with a free 6 p.m. show Friday at the Record Exchange, then a full-blown concert that night at Neurolux. [Tickets]


3. LAUGH IT UP

Big name. Small venue. Near-legendary comedian Gilbert Gottfried will headline Liquid, 405 S. 8th St., this weekend. [Tickets] It’s pretty much a lock that Gottfried, 60, will be freaking hilarious. He might even tell a few potato jokes.

Warning: Profanity. (And funnier than $#@*.)


4. SIP A DARK BEER

You know me: Always a sucker for a quality, high-caliber brew. Taphouse, 760 W. Main St. in Downtown Boise, is going big Friday with a “Darkest Night” event — more than 25 dark beer options. Try not to drain all the kegs.

 

5. CATCH A TOURING BAND

Electro-pop group Beat Connection plays The Watercooler, 1405 W. Idaho St., on Friday night. [Tickets] Country-rapper Cowboy Troy will liven up Cowgirls in Kuna on Saturday. [Tickets] Or bang your head Sunday night with Atreyu and Falling in Reverse at the Revolution Center. (Those be metal bands, Mom). [Tickets]
