Five Things You Should Do This Weekend

When you’re not kicking yourself for procrastinating and missing out on tickets to tonight’s sold-out Alabama Shakes concert:

1. GET SPOOKED WITH ‘GHOST HUNTERS LIVE’
Jason Hawes and Steve Gonsalves from the SyFy reality TV series “Ghost Hunters” will haunt Boise’s Morrison Center tonight. [Details] (When will ‘Ghost Hunters’ explore the basement of The Bouquet? Oh, wait, that’s right, The Bouquet is still closed …)

2. THINK ABOUT IDAHO SUMMERS
Perfect timing. Temperatures are climbing, and the Idaho Sportsman Show will fill Expo Idaho today through Sunday. Expect seminars on Dutch oven, wild game and trail cooking, plus tons of talk about hunting, fishing and camping. Remember to razz the Statesman’s good-natured outdoors editor, Roger Phillips. He mans a booth from 6 to 8 p.m. today. [Details]

3. SAVOR LEFTOVER SALMON
After an eight-year hiatus, the original “Polyethnic Cajun slamgrass” band — Leftover Salmon — has returned with a string-pickin’ vengeance. Pour a bottle of patchouli oil on your dreads and treat yourself to a Saturday night on the town. [Details]

4. WITNESS PILOBOLUS
Hey, it can’t be Trey McIntyre Project ALL the time in Boise. (Although I witnessed a performance by ex-TMP dancer Lauren Edson at last weekend’s Edmond Dantes concert that was waaaay cool.) On Saturday, check out the Boise debut of one-of-a-kind dance company Pilobolus, which blends art and science. [Details]


5. RELIVE THE  ’70s WITH AMERICA
Come on, Grandpa. You can’t sit in the La-Z-Boy smoking your pipe forever.  Head to the Morrison Center for America on Sunday. [Details]
