Five Things You Should Do This Weekend in Boise

1. JOIN THE SONG THRONG
Don’t deny it. You want to strut around singing “Hey now! You’re an all star!” like a dork with Smash Mouth. You want to throw punches at the air while LL Cool J
barks “Mama Said Knock You Out.” You won’t be alone at Saturday’s Boise Music Festival. But will the massive party be the same now that it’s in Garden City?

2. BANG. YER. HEAD.
Because, you know, metal health will drive you mad. Volbeat, Hellyeah, Iced Earth and Heart-Set Self-Destruct will curb-stomp eardrums at 7:30 p.m. tonight at the Knitting Factory.

3. ESCAPE TO SUN VALLEY
The Sun Valley Shakedown will showcase JJ Grey & Mofro, Dirty Dozen Brass Band and DJ Logic starting at 6 p.m. Saturday at the Sun Valley Festival Meadows. Afterward, Logic will head over to Whiskey Jacques to spin the crowd into a frenzy.

4. DANCE TO THE RIDDIM
Summer is the perfect time for Toots & the Maytals. Groove to polished ska and reggae at 8:30 p.m. Saturday at the Knit. Tickets here.

5. GET TRAINED
Union Pacific Railroad is celebrating its 150th anniversary, which means serious train action is headed to the Boise Depot on Sunday. Check out the E9 Streamliner locomotive and other exhibits from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. It’s free.

Do Some Blending In...

If you caught my solo acoustic set opening up for Meat Loaf at Eagle River Pavilion last Monday... my band The Brian Bateman Blend will be playing at 5:00pm on Stage 2 at the Boise Music Festival Saturday. We'll be rounding up just in time to catch Smash Mouth on the mainstage. This is our 2nd year playing the festival. Hope to see some of you out there!
