Third Friday at Artworks Friday 7-10 p.m. Mr. Fancy Pants – Indie Rock from the Ohio Valley Mr. Fancy Pants has been around since c. 2009. As the brainchild of an aging hipster/guitar/singer with a back catalog of random rock tunes and no designs on growing old gracefully, Mr Fancy Pants has maintained some sort of existence, at some level, for the past six years. They even managed to record some songs for an “album” called “So, You Think You Can Pants,” which any interested person can acquire for free (He or she could also make a donation.) simply by going to sdeckermrfancypants.bandcamp.comand downloading the tracks to his or her perferred digital music player. The lineup has changed over the years, but the spirit of the band remains. It is as it was: there dudes in their early to mid-30s getting together when they can to drink a couple beers and make music. Secret Devil Tuning A one-man hillpunk band from Wheeling, W.Va. Blues, punk, shoegaze, garage, and Appalachian folk, sometimes all in the same song. Menopause the Musical Saturday 7:30 p.m. This hilarious musical parody staged to classic tunes from the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s will have you cheering and dancing in the aisles.

Halfway to Jambo Party Saturday 8 p.m. Generations is the place Saturday night to enjoy music by Zane Run and DJ Daner while entering the chance to win four tickets to the 2016 Jamboree in the Hills. Stained Glass Workshop Monday 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?'” Each year, Americans across the country answer that question by coming together on the King Holiday to serve their neighbors and communities. This MLK Jr. Day, The Blue Church is hosting two volunteer sessions from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. and 5 p.m.-9 p.m. Volunteers will have the opportunity to assist in the careful documentation and deconstruction of the stained glass windows of one of the oldest church buildings in our community. The efforts of this day will prepare the windows so that they can be re-leaded by a group of stained glass artisans who have volunteered to “adopt” a window for restoration.
