The Hangar has some of the coldest beer and warmest people on the downtown strip. And, they want to help you get your holidays started off right with a vacation kick-off party. Jumpstart your holidays than the PirkQlaters.
The PirkQlaters' brand of punk/ska has made them a local favorite for years. They are energetic and entertaining and make each show as exciting as the last. The Pirks are Sampson on lead vocals and guitar, Justin on sax and vocals, Luke on trombone, J on drums, Chris on bass and Hoss (happy belated birthday, Hoss) on guitar and vocals. Their blend of raw emotion and practiced playing make them a force to be reckoned with. You can't go to a PirkQlaters show and not have a good time. No matter who they are sharing a stage with (and they've shared the stage with a host of big names like International Noise Conspiracy, The Legendary Shack Shakers, Death By Stereo and The Voodoo Glow Skulls) they stand out because they are original in a music scene sometimes filled with copycats.
This music editor believes the Pirks may someday venture beyond Boise's borders to become big fish in an even bigger pond, so make sure you get out and see them every chance you get, especially this Saturday. Let the PirkQlaters and some holiday spirits at the Hangar get you into the holiday spirit
Saturday, December 17, 9 p.m., FREE, The Hangar, 507 W. Main St., 343-1600
