Nihilists, severed toes, rug-peeing, bowling. Luckily, you won't find any of these things at Boise Weekly's inaugural block party, the Big LeBoise. You will, on the other hand, find enough crafts, bands and booze to make the Dude drop his white Russian in excitement.
We're completely shutting down Broad Street in front of the Boise Weekly offices, and starting bright and early at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 28, you can wave goodbye to your hangover with our bloody mary contest finals while kicking it with the craftiest crafters this side of Craftsville. At 11 a.m., Sherpa kicks off a long day of local music. Hillfolk Noir takes over at noon, New Transit is at 1 p.m., Boise Rock School follows at 2 p.m., Trevor Kamplain from ATTN takes the reins at 3 p.m., Fauxbois rocks out at 4 p.m., Finn Riggins commandeers the stage at 5 p.m. and a sweet dance party gets kicking at 6:30 p.m. and runs until 10 p.m.
Want to take home a brand-new, super slick Vespa scooter? Raffle tickets are only $10, and you don't have to be present to win. You can pick up your very own raffle ticket at BWHQ at 523 Broad St. or at the BW booth at Alive After Five on Wednesday, Aug. 25. The raffle drawing takes place at the Big LeBoise at 6 p.m. sharp.
So, make like the dude and abide our command: Get yourself to the Big LeBoise, man.
