1. WITNESS CREATIVITY

Boise indie band Hollow Wood will join forces with Idaho Dance Theatre for a series of “Live” performances this weekend at the BSU Special Events Center. This should be a beautiful thing to witness. As illustrated in the video below, Hollow Wood always has been an exceptionally creative, collaborative musical endeavor. [Tickets]


2. SEE A FISHY FILM

On Saturday, Boise native Travis Swartz, aka “expert” fly fisherman Hank Patterson, will unleash his second full-length film, “Hank Patterson & The Mystery Of The CuttyRainBrown Trout,” upon Boise. He’ll be there in person, too, hosting the screening at the Linen Building. You were warned. [Tickets]


3. PARTY WITH WINTER

If you haven’t made lodging plans for the McCall Winter Carnival, it’s probably day-trip time by now. Nothing wrong with that. Go join the snow bash. Tons of information is here. Note: The video below is from 2015, but it gives you a good idea of what this festival is all about.


4. SEE SHANG, MANG

With a resume that includes HBO, Comedy Central and BET, stand-up comic Shang has the kind of experience that comes from doing this thing since last century. He likes to be edgy and urban, and he’ll definitely get you laughing while headlining Liquid Laughs this weekend. [Tickets]

Warning: Adult content, profanity


5. CHILL TO REGGAE VIBES

Dig reggae and dub? SoCal band Stick Figure delivers an exceptionally chill, dreamy groove that makes cloud-scraping instrumental passages just as rewarding as more traditional, vocal-powered ones. Stick Figure heaadlines the Knit on Sunday. [Tickets]
