Think you’ve heard acoustic guitar? Andy McKee concert to blow Boise minds

Guitar geeks are well versed in the skills of Andy McKee, who exploded on YouTube over a decade ago with videos that amazed. Heavily influenced by the late Michael Hedges, McKee plays his instrument with dazzling, two-handed technical proficiency, unleashing slap harmonics and popping his instrument percussively like a drum. He’s been on the cover of Acoustic Guitar magazine (time to renew your subscription!) and toured with mainstream acts including Prince and Dream Theater. If you think you’ve seen it all on acoustic guitar, think again.

7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 17, Neurolux, 111 N. 11th St., Boise. $15. TicketWeb. $20 at the door.
