Five Things You Should Do This Weekend in Boise

1. MAKE A VALIANT EFFORT
There’s little use trying to fully convey the hard-rock genius of Valient Thorr with words. Just watch the video. Tonight’s show at Neurolux will include openers The Kickass, Royal Thunder and Holy Grail (7 to 11 p.m., $12 cover.)

2. INHALE BBQ
More than 30 BBQ chefs will compete for $10,000 in cash prizes at Northwest Ribfest this weekend at the new Julius M. Kleiner Memorial Park in Meridian. Entry is free.

3. WATCH PLANES SOAR
If you head to the Warhawk Fighter Roundup on Saturday and Sunday, you will see some extremely cool WWII plans flying above Warhawk Air Museum in Nampa. Kids will dig this.

4. THINK PINK
Let's be clear: Portland-based Pink Floyd tribute act Pigs on a Wing is not operating on the same level as the Brit Floyd, which is coming to the Eagle River Pavilion Sept. 21. Nevertheless, if you’re a diehard Floyd fan, you’ll enjoy this show Saturday at the Knitting Factory (8 p.m., $12.)

5. FLOAT THE RIVER
The Boise River opened for floating this week. Like, what are you waiting for?

WHAT ARE YOU UP TO THIS WEEKEND? DROP YOUR PLUGS IN THE COMMENTS SECTION.

Working, working, working on my already rideable Rollfast.

and my niece's graduation stereo. Sending another gift.

I made it to Weiser today and that's as far as I'll get. It's too bad about the planes.

You fry wants with that?

What am I doing?

I am taking my fresh produce to the farmers market to sale, going on a picnic with amazing people that voted for Dwight D Eisenhower, volunteering at our local community services to help load a trailer with sacks of clothing destined for disbursement to the needy and some valium time on the 12 foot grand piano learning a new piece.

My mom was in French class at her HS when...

President Kennedy was murdered in Dallas.

Somehow valium seems traditional and azureing compared to Prozac almost : )
