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.” (

Illuminance, a national competitive biennial exhibition featuring photographic work from across the nation focuses on the theme, “The Feeling of Rural Night,” set by this year’s juror, Rixon Reed. Reed is the owner of photo-eye Gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Illuminance will be on display in the Fine Arts Gallery. The new exhibition, John Franklin: The Natural Beauty of Wood, will be on display in the Foyer Gallery. In this exhibition, woodworking artist John Franklin displays 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.
There will be Country Night Scenes, an oil pastels interactive activity for all ages, in the Interactive Space.
