Bank, Pete Petersen, Lookin' For Change; Various locations 

The boys of Bank traveled to Eudora, Kan., to work with producer Ed Rose and came back with a tracklist that beautifully express the busy band's indie/pop/rock musical state of mind. You can hear some of the new music on Sunday, Jan. 20 at the Venue when the boys share the stage with We Shot the Moon, The Arctic Turtles and Envoy.

Jazz man Pete Petersen from Portland (Tom Tuttle from Tacoma, anyone?) spent some of his formative years growing up in Boise. On Saturday, Jan. 19, Petersen will be back, performing at Pengilly's, in what he's touting as CD Release Party No. 3. Petersen's will showcase his new release, Keep Your Hat On at Pengilly's with the help of some of friends. Petersen himself will be on tenor sax and he is bringing Bryan Dickerson on alto sax and Greg Garrett on trumpet with him from Portland. Some of Boise's own music makers will be sitting in including Jon Bonine (trombone), Jonah Shue (guitar), Andrew Cortens (piano), Cody Ramey (bass) and Greg Belzeski (drums). Keep Your Hat On is out on Pony Boy Records and Petersen said of course the CD will be available at the show, but will also be distributed nationally as well.

If indie rock and jazz aren't your cup of Earl Grey, Lookin' For Change's hip-hop happening in support of The Album on Friday, Jan. 18, might be more to your liking. A big part of hip-hop is the hustle: getting your name and sound in front of as many potential fans as possible. LFC's Ruben Medrano and Roy Ray Jr. have spent the last couple of years pounding the pavement, handing out of CDs in Salt Lake City, Las Vegas, and of course, Boise. They say they want to remind people here in what they refer to as "The Bo" that there still is and hopefully always will be a hip-hop scene. They'll bringing several friends to the stage with them, including Salt Lake City's Hogg Boss and Big Lake Entertainment, Leezy Soprano of Tacoma, Wash., and locals 33 Deep, Chew Gums, Ether Bone, Eleven and Move Makers.
