At 9 p.m. on Saturday, May 16, The Ackbars play The Plank. As if that in itself wasn't cool enough, the punk rockers are magnanimously donating proceeds from the night to help fund the rockin' three-day show, Loserpalooza, which takes place May 22-24 off Black's Creek Road in Kuna.

Although cover is free for the Plank show, the more people who go, the more delicious beer the the bar sells. The more brews they pour, the more money they give the band. The more dough the band nets, the more goes to the gig. You get the picture. Go down an ale and do your part.

The Plank, 650 S. Vista Ave., Boise, 208-336-1790. Loserpalooza info at
