1. RAP UP THE WEEK

Outspoken hip-hop purveyor Lupe Fiasco headlines the Revolution Center in Garden City on Friday. He’s bringing The Boy Illinois, Billy Blue, ZVerse and the FAM. [Tickets]

Warning: profanity


2. STAMPEDE DOWNTOWN

It puzzles me that more Boise basketball fans don’t check out the Idaho Stampede. Six-foot-10 forward Jeff Ayres has been going off lately. The NBA D-League team takes on the Texas Legends on Saturday and Sunday at CenturyLink Arena. [Tickets]


3. GORGE ON CHOCOLATE

Vote for your favorite chocolate dish at the To Die For Chocolate Festival in Meridian. There will be a no-host beer-and-wine bar, live music and a bounce house for the munchkins, too. It’s from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Saturday at Forward Movement Training Center, 125 W. Taylor Ave.

 

4. DON’T INHALE

After releasing their debut album in 2008, San Diego reggae band Tribal Seeds has made a steady ascent into fans’ hearts. Actually, make that their lungs. The group headlines Sunday at the Knitting Factory. [Tickets]


5. BOTTLE UP FUN

Boise Brewing will celebrate the release of 22-ounce bottles with a get together starting at 5 p.m. Friday. There’s no charge to attend, and you’ll be able to buy bottles to go for $5. [More]
