Cruise by for a happy hour beer and your chance to win a four-day pass for free!

Friday, November 11th after night #2 featuring Dirty Gold, Oregon Bike Trails, and Rafter, Sezio will host an after party at The Linkery. There will be late night snacks, drink specials and a DJ set by Rafter.

Saturday, November 12th the brothers Ralph of Writer will DJ El Take It Easy after their show with Lord Huron and So Many Wizards.

Saturday & Sunday our buddies from MIHO Gastrotruck will be serving up fresh, local food right outside of Sunset Temple. Come early and hungry, MIHO will be set up from 8pm-11pm both nights.

Each concert at Four Day Weekend will feature a local music tastemaker playing tunes in between bands. Here's our full lineup with each night's DJ:

Youth Lagoon @ SDRL

This past Labor Day weekend Trevor Powers left Boise for his first string of shows outside of Idaho under his musical moniker Youth Lagoon. Before his impressive performance that night at Tin Can Alehouse, we snagged him and his guitar player Logan for a quick session at SDRL. All of two months later and Youth Lagoon already has an east coast tour with Gardens & Villa under their belt, plus a smash hit debut record touting a Best New Music credential from Pitchfork.

YL kicks off their first headline US tour in San Francisco on the 1st, and will be making their debut appearance at The Casbah this Thursday with Young Magic and Range Rover. Grab your tickets early before the show sells out!

*Update* Photos from Youth Lagoon's sold out Casbah show can be seen on Pitchfork here.
