1. SEE DOUBLE
Texas singer Granger Smith hit the country charts recently with “Backroad Song.” But many fans headed to his concert Sunday at the Knitting Factory will be clamoring for music from his humorous alter ego, Earl Dibbles Jr. Who can blame them? (Don’t worry; Earl will make an appearance.) [Tickets]
2. HAVE A LAUGH
Although capable of dropping an f-bomb, comic Tyler Boeh mostly takes the clean route to hilarity. Boeh’s naturally likable personality makes it easy to come along for his goofy, anecdote-filled ride. And if the punch lines aren’t working? He’ll turn to his other God-given gift: beatboxing. This allows him to provide his own post-joke rimshots. (Just kidding. Maybe.) Boeh headlines through Sunday at Liquid. [Tickets]
3. FIX YOUR SHACK
Get a jump on spring by planning your home-improvement projects at the 16th annual Idaho Remodeling & Design Show. It’s Saturday and Sunday at the Boise Centre. Look, I even included a coupon to save a buck off the $5 admission. Use it to buy a hammer at Harbor Freight.
4. RAISE HELL
AC/DC-mimicking group Hell’s Belles is the Knitting Factory’s top tribute act, according to the club’s talent buyer. What makes Hell’s Belles so freaking good? For one thing, the songs. Who doesn’t want to grab a brew, raise a fist and sing along with a bunch of ladies to “Highway to Hell” or “Rock and Roll Ain’t Noise Pollution”? Rock out with Hell’s Belles on Friday at the Knitting Factory. [Tickets]
5. BREAK A RESOLUTION
Local folk-rockers Interstate will headline their 6th annual Broken Resolutions Ball, a post-holiday tradition highlighting local music, art and clothing vendors. The Friday-night bash also will feature Belinda Bowler, as well as The Oliphants.
