Need Something To Do Thursday?


Summertime brings with it a slew of opportunities to hear live music outdoors, especially in Idaho, where you can get your fill of local and national acts at Alive After Five, Idaho Botanical Garden, in Stanley, McCall and Sun Valley, and on more restaurant patios than you could ever hope to make it to.

For more than 30 years, people have taken their musical enthusiasm to Roseberry, a town with a sugary-sweet name right outside Donnelly. For three days, you can camp, listen, dance and repeat at the annual Summer Music Festival at Roseberry, which kicks off today and continues through Saturday, July 14.

Tonight is locals night, and will feature The Susie, Dale and Lois Band, along with Fast and Burning, B4Zero,
the High Desert String Band and Innocent Man. Max Torres and Brady Strohmeyer will play during set breaks.

Like what you hear? Stick around to catch Sierra Hull and Milk Drive on Friday, July 13. Round out your weekend Saturday, July 14, with New Orleans funk band Dumpstaphunk and San Diego reggae funk band B-Side Players.

Tonight's show costs $12. Friday's show is $17 and Saturday's is $20. Online ticket sales are long-gone, but you can purchase your ticket at the gate or around McCall at Paul's Market, Ridley's, McCall Drug and Bistro 45. The historic Roseberry General Store will also have tickets for sale.

Planning on spending the whole weekend at the fest? Get all three nights for $45. Boise Weekly doled out free tickets via our promo page, and if you're sad you missed out, don't be. We give stuff away all the time, so get signed up.

Concessions, restrooms and the like will be available around the main stage, but camping isn't permitted. However, you can pitch a tent nearby. For info on where to camp, what to bring and what to leave at home, visit the music fest's website.
