This Week's Hot Picks - Sandpoint Online - Sandpoint, Idaho


Retro laughfest. Take a hilarious look at 'days gone by' when the Boomerang Baby Boomer Comedy Bash arrives at 8 p.m. Friday, March 27, in the Panida Theater. Starring Kat Simmons (The Comedy Channel), David Gee (Showtime With Rita Rudner), and Marc Yaffee (Comics Unleashed), the trio debuted in Northern California this year to rave audience reviews. The three comedy veterans immediately knew they had struck a chord with topics that included cars with no seat belts, parents with no filters, and toys with no safety testing. "We had a feeling this show would go over well, but the audience reaction definitely exceeded our expectations," said Yaffee. "We love being able to take some of our childhood memories and find comedy in the situations that may have been awkward and uncomfortable at the time." Tickets for Friday's show can be purchased in advance at Panida.org or on the night of the show at the Panida box office. The group performs Saturday at the Bing Crosby Theater in Spokane.

Musical talent galore. Concert-goers for the Marshall McLean Band Music Video Release Show Saturday, March 28, in the Panida Theater, 300 N. First Ave., will enjoy a full lineup of incredible music talent. Joining McLean are veterans of other Northwest bands: Justin Landis from Sandpoint-based Cedar and Boyer plays a smoothed-out bass that gives Marshall's songs a strong foundation; Jamie Frost of The Makers is on a clean pedal steel, adding a haunting beauty; and Jesse MacDonald on drums. Opening the show is special guest Anna Tivel. Showtime 8 p.m. Tickets are $12 in advance at Eve's Leaves and Eichardt's, Panida.org; and $15 at the door on the night of the show.
