What do you get when you mix kids, candy and rock 'n' roll? Some amped-up youngsters playing face-melting, heart-thumping rock. Kicking the Halloween weekend off in style, Boise Rock School will take the stage at Record Exchange for a freaky free concert. Focusing on band instruction and performance, Boise Rock School teaches young musicians how to unleash their inner rocker. These pint-sized performers will ham it up at the Monster Mash, with many of the bands dressing up as their favorite groups and playing their favorite hits.
One band of mini musicians is likely to whip things into shape wearing Devo gear. Those not tackling familiar tunes will light up the store with their own mind-blowing original jams. Roughly 10 bands will take the stage, and Record Exchange will be decked out with all sorts of ghoulish decorations to inspire the rocking-est of Rock School rock shows.
Friday, Oct. 30, 5:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m., FREE, Record Exchange, 1105 W. Idaho St., 208-344-8010, boiserockschool.com.
