Snoop Dogg to celebrate end of the world in Treasure Valley; Flogging Molly coming, too, but skeptical

As everyone realizes — thanks to the Mayan calendar and crappy John Cusack disaster flicks — the end of the world is coming next month.

If you’re rapper Snoop Dogg, what better place to celebrate than Garden City, Idaho?

Well, Colorado, for one. And Washington, for another. Maybe Snoop thinks Idaho will follow suit and legalize recreational ganja puffing before he visits?

Whatever the case, Snoop will headline an “End of the World Party” at the Revolution Center on Dec. 20 — the night before the universe folds in on itself in an explosion of failure not unlike Karl Rove crunching Ohio voting stats.

The all-ages show goes on sale Friday, Nov. 16, for $35 general admission, $55 upstairs VIP (21+ only), at Ticketfly.

What? You’re not convinced the Mayans were right?

Good news: Sweat-stained Irish anthem-crankers Flogging Molly — who keep selling out the Knitting Factory when they visit — obviously agree. That band is taking its hard-charging act to the larger-capacity Revolution Center for a pre-St. Paddy’s Day bash Thursday, March 14. (Better ask for March 15 off right now.)

Tickets to that drinkin' 'n' dancin' debacle go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, Nov. 16, at Ticketfly for $29.50 general admission, $49.50 upstairs VIP. This show is all-ages, too, but you have to be 21 to be upstairs.

Craving another EDM dance extravaganza? There’s one coming up in five weeks. The Revolution Center will host the third annual “Not So Silent Night” holiday celebration on Saturday, Dec. 15.

The cast of DJs includes AC Slater, Flinch and Harvard Bass. Tickets go on sale Friday, Nov. 9, at Ticketfly using a sliding scale: $10 through Nov. 11, $15 through Dec. 12, then $20 through Dec. 15. You’ll pay $25 at the door. Upstairs VIP tickets are $35. You have to be 16 or older to get into this show; 21 and older for VIP.

SNOOPIE XMAS PRESENT!!!!

Awesome... so going to be there for this blow out!!

I know you probably cant help yourself

But could you try to keep your politics out of the entertainment section? Or if you can't, go to work for the Boise Weekly. Please?

I think you know the answer to both questions

I wasn't trying to be political (although the hardcores on both sides will take it that way) — just timely. I found the Rover's logic regarding voting statistics to be amusing. He may as well have been wearing one of those "Hope" shirts. Math is math.

Get your own blog...then make your rules...

Clearly Rove was smokin' sumpin when he made those predictions.
