Memorial Day rung in the summer, or outdoor show season. Surprisingly, the amphitheaters have nothing going on this week. If you need your fix, the USNWC will have two River Jam nights, per usual.

Times listed are when the show is scheduled to start, not when the doors are opened. Unless listed otherwise, prices are before taxes and fees.

Agenda Picks

  • 6/2: John Németh, U.S. National Whitewater Center, 7 p.m., free. Németh hits the USNWC for River Jam Thursday. The Blues Music Awards winner and Idaho native plays a harmonica-driven blues with a killer backing band.
  • 6/3: Time Sawyer, Evening Muse, 10:30 p.m., $12-$20 (tickets). The Time Sawyer Soirée will feature great music, some giveaways, and a limited edition “Time Sawyer” beer release from Triple C.
