Movie night

TONIGHT: Super cool documentary, Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked The World is screening tonight at Idaho State Museum. It tells the story of Indigenous musicians and their profound influence on music we know today. One of the most famous artists in the film is jazz singer and Coeur d’Alene tribe member Mildred Bailey. She grew up in a musically-inclined family on the Coeur d’Alene Reservation and made history as the first woman to sing in a big band and to host her own radio show. The film also tells stories of other Indigenous musicians like Link Wray, Redbone, and Buffy Sainte-Marie. Starts at 6pm and tix includes museum admission.

Boise Classic Movies are back! Yay! They are hoping to screen all your Christmas faves out at Idaho Shakespeare Fest. The way BCM works is a certain amount of people have to buy tix for the event to happen. Your card isn't charged until the event is a go. So if you want to see one, you should buy tix right now. It's only $9. Here's the proposed schedule:

Just trust me...

Did you know that in 2021, only 4 natural adult sockeye salmon successfully completed the migration back to Idaho waters? 4. Only 4 salmon. Wut.

Snake River Sockeye Salmon have been on the endangered species list for 30 years. And obvi it's not getting better. There's an event at the Idaho State Capitol about this this weekend on Saturday, Nov 20 at 4pm. I think it's like a rally type of event. But honestly seems like something to pay attention to before it's too late.

Ok that's all I got for ya. Thanks for reading! I'm still planning on sending ya a list of things to do next week on Thxgiving so you have some things to entertain yourself & your fam. Or escape them lol.

With love from Boise,
