Plan on being bored this weekend? Don't. There's a million things going on. Not the least of which is the North Idaho Fair, if you can actually stand it. I do like to see the chickens.
Otherwise, there's plenty of magical live music to behold. Here are some video previews to help you decide:
The Disparities are one of Coeur d'Alene's more promising young indie-rock acts, comprised of Oliver Lemke, Julian Lemke, and Harrison Lemke, three brothers who make a much better racket IMO than the Brothers Jonas and they're just as teen-dreamy. Check them out tomorrow night, 8/29 at 7 p.m. at Calypso's.
Cd'A's unstoppable Cris Lucas closes the summer music series at Eddie's Bar and Grill at Arrow Point Saturday 8/29 with a set of his grungy acoustic folk and lots of witty banter.
Lots of wild jigging will be happening when the girls of Celtic/Folk trio The Gothard Sisters take the stage at the North Idaho Fair this weekend (check calendar for times).
Coeur d'Alene's popular acoustic soul rocker Ron Greene graces the North Idaho Fair tonight 8/28 with a performance at 6 p.m.
Copper Mountain Band hail from Kalispell, MT and bring their upbeat brand of country-rock to the Slab Inn tonight 8/28 and tomorrow 8/29 at 9 p.m.
Stockholm aren't from Sweden, they're actually from Spokavegas, WA and they hit the Calypso's stage tonight 8/28 at 7 p.m.
Southern California metal act Kicking K8 plays The Grail tonight 8/28/ with opening acts Boneyard Butchers, Peratus and Medicine Wheel at 7 p.m.
