Get off your couch, Idaho! It’s time to plan a trip to Tamarack Resort in Donnelly — only a couple of hours from Boise — and rock out at the second annual Huckleberry Jam next weekend. The easygoing festival has everything you want in an outdoor mountain bash: On-site camping, craft beer and a consistently strong lineup: On Aug. 12, Jeff Crosby & The Refugees (3:30 p.m.), Monophonics (5 p.m.), Brandi Carlile (7 p.m.) and Beats Antique (9 p.m.), and on Aug. 13, Shook Twins (1:15 p.m.), Moon Hooch (3 p.m.), Lake Street Dive (4:45 p.m.), Robert Randolph and the Family Band (6:45 p.m.) and Michael Franti and Spearhead (8:45 p.m.). Don’t forget to grab a free chairlift ride between bands. The Idaho scenery is fantastic.
