The groundhog is fired.  Forgive us, but we're over living in a snow globe after a promise of "early spring." We'll just sit here, close our eyes and dream of summer concert season!

Josh Groban at Outlaw Field

Admit it, you're a sucker for Josh Groban.  You can deny it all you want but when the chorus of "You Raise Me Up" hits, you can't help but belt it out along with him.  During the Christmas season, there's something about his song "Believe" from Polar Express that gets you choked up...every...single...time. Plus, you secretly loved it when he crooned the pop culture phenomenon that is "Baby Shark" alongside James Corden. If you missed his last visit to the Treasure Valley in 2013, don't make the same mistake this time! Josh Groban is coming back to the Treasure Valley on Friday, August 30!

O.A.R. with American Authors and Rozzi at Knitting Factory

Admittedly, I was in tears and shaking when the Knitting Factory announced this show.  American Authors are awesome and we love "Best Day of my Life," but I have worshiped the band they're opening for the better part of fourteen years. O.A.R hasn't headlined in Boise since 2002 back when the Knit was the Big Easy (they did open for Train at the Ford Idaho Center Amphitheater in 2017) and every time I've had the opportunity to ask them to consider coming here to do a full set, I've seized the day and blurted it out. I'm talking as recently as last week when they were asking fans on Instagram to help them route their tour...yes, I'm that girl.  The tour supports their upcoming album The Mighty.
