Old-time music, with tattoos, returns to the South Shore this week. Perennial Lake Tahoe favorite the Devil Makes Three is back at the MontBleu Resort Casino and Spa’s theater this Wednesday, Jan. 27.

The group’s sound is “garage-y ragtime, punkified blues, old n’ new timey without settling upon a particular era,” according to the band’s online biography.

The genre-bending mix tends to result in a boot-stomping party for those who attend their live shows, which have continued to grow over the band’s nearly 15-year history.

The event starts at 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $30, plus fees. Learn more at


The Nevada Division of State Parks is seeking grant applications for the 2016 federal funding round of the Recreational Trails Program. Nevada could potentially receive $1.1 million in grant funds.

Previous projects have included the Flume Trailhead parking area in Washoe County, the Sierra Vista Park Trails System in Reno and the Ash Canyon Creek Bridge in Carson City.

Grants may be awarded to counties, municipalities, state and federal agencies, private organizations, nonprofits and Native American tribal governments for the purpose of providing outdoor recreational trail activities. Because funding through this program is limited, allocation of these funds will be competitively determined by the Ad-Hoc Recreation Trails Program Committee.

Visit to review the manual and determine eligibility. The full application may be downloaded at and is due by 5 p.m. on May 6. Questions should be directed to Jenny Scanland at 775-684-2787 or

The Art Club at Lake Tahoe Community College welcomes Bay Area artist Mark Jaeger for a two-day artist-in-residence event this February.

Jaeger, who primarily works with clay, will host a lecture Friday, Feb. 5, at 6 p.m. in Room F101. A hands-on demonstration of his techniques will be held Saturday, Feb. 6, at 11 a.m. in Room F104. Both rooms are located in the fine arts building, where the Duke Theatre is housed.

These are free events, and interested artists from the community are encouraged to attend. Space will be limited, so please arrive early to assure a spot.

Jaeger developed his artwork while studying ceramics at University of California, Davis, and he continues to evolve his techniques while teaching ceramics in Marin County. He also operates his own private studio in San Anselmo. Jaeger has already solidified himself as a significant figurative artist, and his work has been acquired by notable art collectors such as Clinton Reilly and the late Robin Williams.

In describing his particular approach to art, Jaeger said, “My work explores the human condition through concepts of personal and social identity. I’m concerned with how we project ourselves — our intentions, our purpose, our morality — and how that projection is both perceived and interpreted by society and by our own selves.”

The LTCC Art Club Visiting Artist Series is funded through student fundraising activities and donations. The club is made up of a community of art students who are interested in a variety of mediums, cooperating together in artistic endeavors.
