1. ROCK OUT

2. MEET AN AMAZING ARTIST

SoCal artist Adonna Khare does things with pencil that are simply flabbergasting. Join her for the opening of Boise Art Museum’s new exhibition, “Adonna Khare: The Kingdom,” from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Friday. It’s $10.


3. PARTY WITH YOUR BRAIN

The 12th annual Engineering and Science Festival at Boise State University happens all day Saturday. Thousands of students will attend, and everyone is welcome. It’s free.

 

4. JOIN THE GUYS

Ah, those irresistible Piano Guys. The YouTube sensations are back in Boise — at the Morrison Center on Saturday — with their blend of classical and pop music. There’s a matinee and evening show.


5. LIGHT UP YOUR NIGHT

Oregon-based Rainbow Dance Theatre turns the lights out — and the trippy visuals on — with its “iLumiDance” show. Check it out Friday at Nampa Civic Center.
