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)
