The Avett Brothers

The Avett Brothers combine bluegrass, country,punk, pop melodies, folk, rock and roll, indie rock, honky tonk, and ragtime to produce a novel sound described by the San Francisco Chronicle as having the “heavy sadness of Townes Van Zandt, the light pop concision ofBuddy Holly, the tuneful jangle of the Beatles, the raw energy of the Ramones.”

Gem and Mineral Shows

With 40 floor room exhibitions as well as hundreds of niche dealers its time again for our pueblo to become a giant showroom for the world’s largest gem and mineral expo.
A guide to the locations can be found here Tucson Show Guide 
Fossils, jewelry, crystals, meteorites and precious stones can all be found at this event.  Also lectures and seminars for the rockhound enthusiast such as the ones put on by the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show Society are also staples of the show.
The Gem and Mineral Expo will run from 2/1-2/15
