Lucky Tubb & the Modern Day Troubadours concert

Date? Friday, October 11
Time? 7pm doors, 7:30pm start
Where? Harley-Davidson Museum
How Much? $5
The details… Lucky Tubb’s music is straight up honky tonk rendered in an old-school authentic hillbilly style. Lucky’s style is reminiscent to the raw and original country style of the earliest Nashville artists. Never breaking stride and never retreating, Lucky has moved up the ranks of the old-school country music scene. Lucky wears his life experiences like a well-tailored suit with the sleeves ripped off. Bottom line, Lucky Tubb is the real deal. People will always like good honky-tonk music, and will for generations to come.

Help Wanted for Painting Thesis Models

The details… “The Reconfigured Portrait” thesis project is a conducted study on the largest organ of the human body…the skin. A photographic skin sample is needed from willing participants, varying in age and ethnicity, to make this project possible.
