Five Things You Should Do This Weekend

When you’re not watching Bronco football players being flagged for doing the invisible horse dance in the end zone against Fresno State:

1. SEE A THRILLER
Local movie used to mean unwatchable movie. Not anymore. Filmed in Boise, "3 of a Kind" is an award-winning psychological thriller that confronts domestic violence. Watching the trailer, you get the feeling Boiseans may be cheering at the screen during the Idaho premiere. The showing at 7 p.m. Saturday at the Egyptian Theatre is part of a planned 17-city tour with proceeds going to local domestic violence shelters. Actress Margot Kidder, who plays Claire, says, " '3 of a Kind' is an extraordinary film, and to shoot it in Boise was a wonderful experience."

BSU football coach Chris Petersen does the invisible horse dance — 'Gangnam Style'

Now this is some funny @#$%.

Somebody with waaaaaay too much time on his hands has unleashed a "Gangnam Style" parody video starring the face of Boise State football coach Chris Petersen.

Featuring Coach Pete, Joe Southwick, Kellen Moore — even the infamous BSU exploding cow (watch closely at 1:15) — it’s a masterpiece of stupidity.

The original "Gangnam Style" video from South Korean pop star Psy has been viewed more than 430,000,000 times since its release July 15. It's also inspired a dance craze.

The Coach Pete version is already near 20,000 YouTube views. I feel like I should jab forks into my eyes for watching this video repeatedly, but I just can't stop laughing. Can you?

New Revolution Center launches Wednesday dance nights

When The Big Easy launched more than a decade ago, the concert house quickly established itself as a dance-club favorite among the 16 and older set.

The new Revolution Center is aiming to do the same next week.

Beginning Oct. 24 with a free, invitation-only kickoff party, the Garden City venue will launch Club Rev, a weekly dance bash.

“Our goal is to keep the energy high, keep people dancing and throw a big party every Wednesday,” says owner Creston Thornton, who previously opened The Big Easy, which eventually was sold to, and renamed, the Knitting Factory.

Potential for success seems solid at the 2,200-capacity Revolution Center — at least based on response from about 600 Capital High students who danced the night away for homecoming Sept. 28.

“The kids were going nuts,” Thornton says.
