Casey's pick

Grab the family and head out to the Josephine Crossing subdivision Tuesday night as they kick off their summer concert series with the Jaded Ladies and Dirty Power. The free show kicks off at 6 p.m. Food is available for purchase, and proceeds benefit the Elysian School playground fund. For directions, go to www.mccalldevelopment.com/our-neighborhood/find-us.

Jaci's pick

For any Edward Abbey fans out there, here's a chance to meet the real-life inspiration for the character George Washington Hayduke in Abbey's book, "The Monkey Wrench Gang." Doug Peacock is a Livingston author and the man behind Hayduke. He is speaking at 1 p.m. Saturday at Pictograph Cave State Park as part of the free speaker series. He will be discussing his new book, "In the Shadow of the Sabertooth."
