Hot Local Knights 

If you prefer your knight in shining armor to wear skinny jeans in place of chain mail and wield a guitar instead of a lance, then you might just find your Lancelot at Hot Local Knights, the Venue's annual battle of the bands.

Every Saturday in January a slew of local acts have been rock 'n' roll jousting for sweet prizes. They'll keep going until Saturday, Feb. 5. Each night has featured a different type of music--hard-core, alternative, metal, indie/acoustic, pop punk--and the evening's top two bands from each category go on to compete in the finals. Prizes include $1,000 cash for first place, a $600 gift certificate to Boise Guitar Center for second place and $500 worth of recording time at Speck Studio for third place.

On Saturday, Jan. 29, the Venue will showcase local indie/acoustic acts, including Jacob Donivan, CBS, Just a Fluke, Chris Cross, Castanelli, The Desert Starrs, Mitch Spivey, The Bread Bear, Rob Lanterman, Apple Thief, Jason Chacon, A Sea of Glass, Uriah and Desirae Bronson.

Tickets are $8 per night and can be purchased through any band on the line-up or at
