All Ages Concert Venue Coming to Boise Area
The Treasure Valley is blessed with some incredible concerts and concert venues. We have great venues from Nampa's Ford Idaho Center to ExtraMile Arena, to the Knitting Factory, to Botanical Gardens and dozens of others. While there are great venues and options for teens and kids to attend shows when the show is a all ages, there has never been a venue for all ages that focuses on youth also showing off their talents and skills. A lot of the smaller venues that show off local talent are in bars that are 21 and over. A local Boise Non-profit is hoping to change that.
The Boise Underdogs' goal is to provide a safe concert space for all ages. KTVB spoke to Underdogs co-founder Alex Marshall who said, "We want to focus on keeping a safe space for the under 21 crowd, which is why we are a dry venue. We don't have any alcohol sales or anything like that.” Marshall said Underdogs will also be a safe space for under-represented groups in Idaho..."
