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.

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..."

One Boise favorite, Red Feather Lounge, has been closed for quite some time. Here's just a glimpse at all that they have to offer.
