Josh Ritter, JJ Grey team up for outdoor Boise concert


It’s gonna be a fantastic Friday night for fans of singer-songwriter Josh Ritter and Southern jam-rocker JJ Grey (pictured). The two men will co-headline Outlaw Field, each flanked by his respective backing musicians — the Royal City Band, in Ritter’s case, and Mofro in Grey’s. It’s a busy time of year for these performers but just the preface of what’s to come; Ritter heads out on tour in support of Jason Isbell this fall, while Grey goes overseas. At this Boise show, Ritter will close. (Hey, he’s the Idaho native, right?) Expect about 75-minute performances from each.

6 p.m. Friday, July 15, Outlaw Field at Idaho Botanical Garden, 2355 Old Penitentiary Road, Boise. $35. Ticketmaster. Opening: HoneyHoney.
