Thrift Store Cowboys

The Buddy Holly Center is thrilled to present Thrift Store Cowboys as part of the 2013 Summer Showcase Concert Series, the weekly Thursday night concert series held in the Meadows Courtyard.  On August 22, 2013, from 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m., Thrift Store Cowboys will treat the audience to Alternative Country.  The concert is FREE and open to the public.  There will be a cash bar.  Please, no outside beverages allowed.

This talented group of artists brings a unique sound to the South Plains musical landscape with their own modern style. With tunes ranging from country to rock, they found that each member contributes a special flare. Thrift Store Cowboys was established in 1999. They have toured the southern and western coasts of the U.S. and have performed with other talents such as DeVotchKa, Cory Bryan, and Sleepy Horses. As Buddy Magazine points out, “Thrift Store Cowboys’ feel is more, for a lack of better description, gypsy desert music – the free sound of spacey, heat-induced delirium…a sure, confident sound backed by thoughtful vision.” (http://liveandbreathing.com/thrift-store-cowboys)

On the first Friday of September, the Buddy Holly Center invites the community to participate in Lubbock’s First Friday Art Trail, an event held on the first Friday of every month in venues around the city, organized by the Louise Hopkins Underwood Center for the Arts, and Buddy’s 79th Birthday Bash, in honor of Lubbock’s most famous son, Buddy Holly.

On Friday, September 4, 2015 the Buddy Holly Center will be open from 4:30 – 9:00 p.m. for patrons to view its exhibits, participate in a Gallery Talk with Ken Davis in the Fine Arts Gallery at 4:30 p.m. and listen to Element perform R&B and Funk music in the Meadows Courtyard from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. There will be FREE admission and refreshments. For more information on the First Friday Art Trail, visit www.ffat.org and for more information on Buddy’s 79th Birthday Bash visit www.buddyhollycenter.org.

Ken Davis: The Landscape Through a Musician’s Eyes will be on display in the Fine Arts Gallery. Chorale director and Santa Fe artist, Ken Davis, will exhibit recent selections from his portfolio of landscape paintings of the Southwest as well as scenes from his travels to Europe and South America. There will be a Gallery Talk with Ken Davis in the Fine Arts Gallery at 4:30 p.m. John Franklin: The Natural Beauty of Wood will be in the Foyer Gallery. Woodworking artist John Franklin will display his latest creations fashioned from a variety of woods. Franklin uses a lathe to transform wood into functional and sculptural forms, with the goal of maximizing the natural grain and inherent beauty of each type of wood. His raw materials come from all over the world, but he’s especially fond of using Texas woods such as mesquite, cottonwood, hackberry and Manzanita.
