5 Things To Do This Weekend in Boise

Zomboy grew up loving heavy metal. He doesn’t exactly headbang on stage, but he does sort of solo mosh.

1. JOIN THE ZOMBOY APOCALYPSE

Heads up, EDM fans: It’s looking like a full house Friday night at the Revolution Center, where British producer Zomboy will obliterate the place with low-frequency beat warheads. The lineup leading up to Zomboy’s set is rather beasty: Kid Koma, So Sleepy, White Owl Project and bass producer Ghastly, aka David Crow, who has been blowing up.

2. SIP AND NIBBLE

In its fifth year, annual sip-and-bite festival Taste 208 is moving to two locations: Downtown for a $75 “VIP Experience” on Friday, and outside the new Payette Brewing Co. for a $50 “Grand Tasting” on Saturday. Tickets should be available at the gate, but it would be safer to buy in advance.

3. GO GREEN

The fourth annual Idaho Green Fest will celebrate our planet from 4 to 10 p.m. Saturday at 8th and Bannock streets. It’s free, all-ages, and there will be lots of local music. Be sure to check out funky jam band Jupiter Holiday at 9 p.m.

4. LAUGH HARD

If your mood needs to improve, head to the Morrison Center on Saturday. Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood from “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” are like hydraulic log splitters. Except the logs are your sides. And their jokes make more sense than mine.
