If BW's concert calendar is any indicator, our western cousins are into metal. So, so, so much metal.
And this weekend, even they may get their fill with the second annual Boise Metal Fest: three full days of metalicious metal with 26 regional and national bands performing both in- and outside Meridian's New Frontier Club.
Music starts around 8 p.m. Friday, July 12 and 2 p.m. Saturday, July 13, and Sunday, July 14.
It's enough metal that even Meridian may be crying for mercy by the end of it.
Friday, July 12, 8 p.m.; Saturday, July 13, 2 p.m; Sunday, July 14, 2 p.m.; $5-$25. New Frontier Club, 116 E. Broadway Ave., Meridian, 208-888-9034, newfrontierclub.com/calendar.
