Need Something To Do Wednesday?


Wednesday is "live music day" in Boise. And today is a live-music day for the books.

There's Alive After Five with House of Hoi Polloi (filling in for Johnny A. who had to cancel due to illness) and Tim Andreae, Jumping Sharks at Neurolux, blues at both Jo's Sunshine Lounge and Liquid, Gypsyhawk is at Red Room, Bush—you know, that band fronted by that guy who married Gwen Stefani—is at Knitting Factory, and Shades is at the Flying M Coffeegarage. And then there's all the dinner music.

There's so much live music, it might be overwhelming and make you want to do something else altogether.

So tonight, how about seeing the world through the eyes of our refugee neighbors?

Head on down to The Flicks tonight and you can catch the Agency for New Americans Film Screenings.

Tonight, they will be showing two short films: They Call Me Muslim, and Enemies of Happiness. The first film is an examination of the effects of bans on muslim headscarves, and the second addresses the evolving political role of women in Afghanistan. There will be a discussion after the films.

The event starts at 7 p.m. and tickets are $12.
