It could be the ultimate girls night out when ’80s icon Cyndi Lauper hits the Idaho Botanical Garden’s Outlaw Field stage. This dynamic performer always brings the attitude. She received two standing ovations when she opened for Cher at the Idaho Center in 2002. So look for fun, fun, fun as she rolls out her pop classics, such as “Girls Just Want to Have Fun,” “She Bop” and the anthem-like “True Colors.” But wait until you hear what’s she’s been up to lately — yes, she’s gone a little bit country. Lauper is a Grammy, Emmy and Tony winner (for “Kinky Boots”) and is now a best-selling author for her biography “Cyndi Lauper: A Memoir.” Blues harmonica virtuoso Charlie Musselwhite will open.

7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 21, Outlaw Field at Idaho Botanical Garden, 2355 Old Penitentiary Road, Boise. $43.50. Ticketmaster.
