To salute the premiere of the new rockumentary It Might Get Loud, featuring the White Stripes' Jack White, U2's The Edge and Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page, the tikes from Boise Rock School will host a premiere of the movie at The Flicks. And, according to Boise Rock School co-founder Ryan Peck, this isn't just any old movie premiere.
"Everyone's excited about Jack White. Since we've started the Rock School, it's blown my mind how many kids like the White Stripes," said Peck. "They just love them."
Alongside local musician Ned Evett, a handful of members from Boise Rock School will give a short presentation after the film. The Boise Rock School is currently looking for donations of money and or musical instruments to go towards kids who can't afford to buy instruments in the school.
"We're trying to raise money that exclusively goes towards instruments that we can loan them out to kids that are on scholarship," Peck said. "We want to have a bank of instruments where we can say, 'Here, do you want to play bass? You want to play guitar? What do you want to do?'"
Though the movie doesn't start until 7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 24, Peck encourages folks to head out early, grab a cold beverage from the bar and stick around to win some prizes in the raffle.
Thursday, Sept. 24, 7 p.m., $12, The Flicks, 646 Fulton St., 208-343-4222. For more information on the Boise Rock School, visit boiserockschool.com.
