Michael Deeds recommends

Mimicking Birds: July 22, The Olympic. Boiseans might remember when this excellent Portland rock band opened for Modest Mouse at Outlaw Field.

Boise’s Funniest Person: July 23, Liquid Laughs. Amateur stand-up comics clash in the last week before the finals.

Kansas: July 26, Revolution Center. It’s tough when the best-known singer and guitarist are gone, but the songs still “Carry On Wayward Son.”
