A busy Friday night in Los Alamos

-A A +A

There are a lot of options for residents Friday night in Los Alamos.

It will be Los Alamos Monitor Night with a free concert at Ashley Pond.

Playing will be the Parker Millsap Band with Michael Rose featured on stand-up bass.

“Parker Millsap is a young singer-songwriter that’s most likely going to be a big star in the near future,” Organizer Russ Gordon said. He plays Americana-folk-rock-blues-gospel and reminds me of some of the best of this genre; heroes like Tom Waits, Ray LaMontagne, Ryan Adams, John Mayer, Lyle Lovett, Robert Earl Keen, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Keller Williams and then there’s Dylan and Woody Guthrie.”

Los Alamos National Laboratory Bradbury Science Museum will host “What’s in a Click: The Wonders of High Speed Imaging,” from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday.

Laboratory personnel and their families and the general public can learn about the advances of high-speed cameras and the discoveries scientists at LANL have made with them.

The museum partners with Fuller Lodge Art Center, the Los Alamos Historical Museum and Los Alamos County among others in the Downtown Friday Night program.
