ANOTHER APOLOGY: Looks like Boise Weekly had a little Web site mix-up. We have been cajoling, begging, pleading, ordering and demanding that bands get on the Boise Weekly Web site, click on the Boise Band Roster and enter their band's information. Looks like most of the musicians were listening. However, we didn't know that, because it wasn't working on our end. It seems as though all of the information entered in that area of the Web site went into an Internet worm hole. There are probably aliens in some far away place and time really digging the MP3 samples and photos of our favorite local bands. Sorry, sorry, sorry. Once again we ask that you get your band information entered in our Band Roster. Questions? We've got you covered. Above are instructions for entering your information and uploading the sights and sounds of your band.
Effective July 1, Tom Grainey's has changed their cover charge price: On Fridays and Saturdays it's now $5 to get in, but on Mondays through Thursdays you can walk in for free (just show the folks at the door your ID). This means that each Monday you can hear 6th Street Collective for nada; Tuesdays you can listen to Plan B for diddly; Wednesdays in July you can groove to Vincent Vegas, Frame of Mind and Octane for zip; Thursdays in July you can enjoy Score the Floor, Delta Nove, Doug Cameron and Phil Goodson for not so much as a thin dime.
Tickets to the July 9 Ben Harper show at the Big Easy are sold out but, if its any consolation, you can still get tickets to see Kelly Clarkson in September at the Idaho Center Arena.
According to www.radioboise.org, the Boise Community Radio Project begins webcasting July 1. The following is their mission statement: "The Boise Community Radio Project (BCRP) aims to cultivate a stronger sense of 'place' in the Treasure Valley by providing an unprecedented diversity of locally produced, high quality audio programs to inform, energize and educate its listeners. Through an inclusive approach to broadcasting in the region, BCRP will uphold programming principles designed to inspire creative discussion and enhance social, cultural and environmental awareness by providing music, entertainment, and community affairs programming to underserved communities within the broadcast area." Music will make up roughly 75 percent of the BCRP format. The webcast hopes to provide the community with an outlet for information about local issues. This is gonna be good.
