Five Things You Should Do This Weekend

1. SEE WORLD-CALIBER TENNIS
Tennis fans are salivating at the prospect of this weekend’s Davis Cup tennis competition at Taco Bell Arena. The world’s No. 1-ranked player, Novak Djokovic, is just one of the many reasons to check out the action. [Tickets]

2. ROCK — WHILE YOU STILL CAN
Time is running out to check out your favorite skull-crushing band at The Venue in Boise. The all-ages music club plans to move to Caldwell by mid-May. Saturday night’s show is headlined by Massachusetts metalcore band Within the Ruins. Sunday is headlined by less-noisy Texas act The Rocket Summer. [Tickets]

3. GO AUG-WILD
Comedian Auggie Smith is a regular on “Bob and Tom,” so Boiseans who listen to 96.9 The Eagle are intimately familiar with him. Smith will perform tonight through Sunday at Liquid Laughs. [More]

4. CHECK OUT THE NEW MARKET
When couples split up, friends usually side with one or the other afterward. Fortunately for us, we can be buds with both the Capital City Public Market and the newly launched Boise Farmers Market, which opens Saturday morning at 11th and Grove streets. It runs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. [More]

5. SEE A MOVIE
OK, so the “Evil Dead” remake isn’t terrible. And, yeah, “Jurrasic Park” has received the 3D treatment. But maybe you’re looking for something different. Touring film festival Lunafest, showing at 12:30 p.m. Saturday at The Flicks, could be your ticket. [More]
