The legendary Shelton Hank Williams III (aka Hank 3) makes albums that are an eclectic mix of country and near zombie-esque metal. Ghost to a Ghost/Gutter Town is a double LP and reflects a strong country background but doesn't shy away from the expected punk and metal influences and "hellbilly" sound Hank 3 is known for. Hank 3 will be melding minds with this diverse sound in Boise at the Knitting Factory on Sunday, Sept. 2. Tickets went on sale today, Friday, June 22, at 10 a.m., and are available at ticketfly.com. This show is 18 and up, the reason being obvious to any Hank 3 fan. Tickets are $18 for general admission and $40 for VIP. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. with music kickin' off at 8:30 p.m.
Pilobolus is one of the most-popular modern dance companies in the country because of its astounding athleticism and mix of personalities. Pilobolus has performed on Conan O'Brien, Sesame Street, in an OK Go video and more. The company is humorously named after a sun-loving fungus that lives in cow dung. But even with this outrageous name, the group has thrived for more than 30 years with its astounding ability to shock audiences and entwine bodies so beautifully that they resemble a single living organism. Pilobolus will be performing in the Morrison Center on Saturday, March 2, 2013, at 8 p.m. Tickets went on sale today, Friday, June 22, at 10 a.m. for $29.50-$39.50.

Revolution Concert House, Boise's newest concert venue located off of Chinden Boulevard and Glenwood Street, recently announced its opening lineup, which features Joe Walsh of the Eagles on Wednesday, Aug. 27. Walsh released Analog Man, his first solo album in 20 years, in June and surprised listeners with honest and candid lyrics accompanied by the familiar sounds of his guitar. Analog Man expresses the new reality Walsh is facing having been sober for 18 years and finding himself in a fast-paced technological world that he refuses to be left behind in. Although the world around Walsh has changed, his passion for music and his ability to whip a crowd into a rock 'n' roll frenzy remain. Fans can buy tickets to Joe Walsh and a number of other Revolution shows starting today, Friday, June 22, at 10 a.m. via ticketfly.com. Tickets start at $49.50 for general admission and jump to $149.50 for VIP. The show will start at 8 p.m with doors at 7 p.m.
