Five Things You Should Do This Weekend in Boise

1. PLAY TENNIS — OR OTHER LIVE-MUSIC SPORTS
Let’s break it down by age. Feeling young? Check out indie-pop act Tennis on Saturday at Neurolux. [Tickets] Feeling old? Go see Rolling Stones tribute band Satisfaction tonight at the Revolution Center. [Tickets] Older than that? Catch The Diamonds with The Jimmy Dorsey Orchestra on Saturday afternoon at the Morrison Center. [Tickets]

2. GET A-ROUSE-D
Although he made noise on Dave Attell’s Insomniac Tour years ago, Sean Rouse isn’t as famous as he should be. He’s one of my all-time favorite comedians, but his twisted humor is the type that makes club owners turn down the lights so patrons aren’t afraid to laugh. Catch Rouse tonight and Saturday at Liquid Laughs.

Warning: adults only — profanity, obscenity, etc. — do not watch if you’re easily offended!

3. SEE MARS BEFORE IT’S GONE
Last call! “Mars Revisited,” the site-specific installation from New York artists Kahn/Selesnick, will close after this weekend at Boise Art Museum. The artists used photos taken at Craters of the Moon in Idaho to depict a human visit to Mars.

4. WATCH SOME B-BALL
The Idaho Stampede host the Rio Grande Valley Vipers tonight and Saturday at CenturyLink Arena. And the Boise State Broncos welcome Fresno State to Taco Bell Arena on Saturday night. (Bonus: You won’t even get wanded!)

5. SKI FREE
Get out those snowshoes. On Saturday, trails and parking lots will be free at Idaho City Park ‘n’ Ski areas, which are located between 17 and 23 miles north of Idaho City on Idaho 21. Yurt open houses also will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. [More]
