Moe Bandy

Texas-born Moe Bandy is about as country as it gets, a former bull rider and sheet metal worker. His style of music, too, leans more traditional, the kind of classic country you'd find on a honky-tonk jukebox. Some of his accolades include: Ten No. 1 hits, five gold albums, and multiple awards from the Academy of Country Music. 7-9 p.m., Tri-Lakes Center for the Arts, 304 Hwy. 105, Palmer Lake, $55-$65, trilakesarts.org.




7 Friday

Pulitzer Prize Recipient: Bob Jackson

Chances are you've seen Jackson's internationally recognized photo, showing the moment Jack Ruby shot Lee Harvey Oswald. A biography of Jackson, which he will be signing at the opening, chronicles his life's experiences as a photojournalist. What's more: His iconic photographs will be on display at the gallery all month. 5-9 p.m., on display through July 29, Go-See Art Exhibition Venue, 25 Sierra Madre St., facebook.com/COSGOSEE.
