  • Boise Art Museum Hosts Art of Fashion Show

    Friday, Oct. 26

      The fusion of fashion and art will be on display Friday, Oct. 26, when BAM presents its Art of Fashion Show. The museum hosted a Recycled Fashion contest in early May, in which designers submitted their creations of attire made from repurposed materials. Those designs will head down the runway at the show, and attendees can vote for their favorite, with the victorious designer taking home $500.

  • Have a Lively Time at Evil Dead: The Musical

    Friday, Oct. 19-Wednesday, Oct. 24

      According to a press release, Daisy's Madhouse sold out all seven performances of its Evil Dead The Musical production last year.

The return production promises not only more opportunities to see the show, but even more fake blood.

  • Have Some Fun at the Theater With the Rocky Horror Show

    Runs through Oct. 31

      Rocky Horror virgins can expect an exceptionally interactive theater experience, with veterans singing along and shouting often-outlandish phrases. Purchase a kit of Rocky Horror accessories for $5, and enjoy doing the sorts of things you were never allowed to do during childhood--like throwing toilet paper, shooting water guns indoors and making lots of noise.

      Attendees can, of course, expect to find an abundance of beer at the festival, with season-appropriate brews from far, far away, as well as Sierra Nevada and locals Payette Brewing Company and Crooked Fence Brewing Co.

      But the fun isn't all for the legal-to-drink set. From noon-5 p.m., attendees of all ages can explore the rides of yesteryear with a car show from This-N-That Classic Car Group and peruse crafts from local artisans.

  • Improv Comedy Troupes Will Battle It Out Cage-Match Style

    Saturday, Sept. 8

      Local improv troupes will take to the stage at Fatty's on three consecutive Saturday nights, with the first Saturday, Sept. 8. And while the who-knows-what-they'll-say stuff of the improv will be in full force, expect more of a theoretical cage match than the violent physical duel in a literal cage seen in arenas and on TV.

      But this yard party is infinitely cooler than the one you threw last weekend, at least musically. It'll substitute the jams bellowing from your iPod dock with live musical performances from local electro dudes Mozam, the Thomas Paul Trio, hip-hoppers Dedicated Servers, Edmond Dantes, Boise Rock School, Joanna Richard, The Project, Matthew Lon Shockey and BW's own Josh Gross.
