Five Things You Should Do This Weekend in Boise

1. GET THE BLUES WITH JOE
Blues shredder Joe Bonamassa says he has an interesting acoustic/electric show planned for the Morrison Center tonight. His career has definitely skyrocketed since he first played Boise in 2007.

2. GET THE BLUES WITH JOHN
Ex-Boisean John Nemeth is back in town for a show at the Egyptian Theatre on Saturday night. He’s bringing The Bo-Keys as his backing band, which should be hot.

3. LAUGH WITH JEFF — OR FRIENDS OF BOB & TOM
Ventriloquist comedian Jeff Dunham is headed to Ford Arena tonight, which means thousands of Idahoans will follow him there. At Boise’s competing Egyptian Theatre, the competing “Friends of Bob & Tom Show” comedy tour will offer Costaki Economopoulos, Mike Armstrong, Tim Bedore and David Crowe.

4. HAVE A GIANT PILLOW FIGHT
Banana-loving Swedish DJ duo Dada Life wants to party Saturday night at the Revolution Center. Part of their contract includes having the RevCenter supply 200 feather pillows with the ends cut off. Skip to the 6-minute mark in this video to see why.

5. CHECK OUT A NEW BREWERY
Targeting North Enders, Cloud 9 Brewery opened this month at 17th and State. [Video] And Crooked Flats tasting room celebrates its grand opening Saturday at what used to be Woodriver Cellars in Eagle.
