There's a really cool music festival happening in my home state of Idaho this weekend. It's called the Braun Brothers Reunion, and it happens every year in Challis, Idaho. It's a little over five hours west of Bozeman. The BBR is very similar to the Red Ants Pants Festival here in Montana. I usually go every year, but this year I'm going to have to miss it.

The good news is, many of the bands performing at BBR this weekend will be playing at different places throughout Montana within the next month. If you love Texas red dirt country, I highly recommend you check some of them out. All of them are really good.

Here's a list of different places they're playing in Montana.
