The Clark County Historical Museum, 1511 Main St., Vancouver, hosts Museum After Hours from 5 to 8 p.m. every first Friday of the month in conjunction with downtown Vancouver’s First Friday Art Walk. Admission is free. Each monthly event showcases a different theme with experiences such as pop-up exhibits, workshops, live performances and author readings.

Scoot your boots

Country singer Matt Hodges will offer an evening of classic country music from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday at the Barberton Grange, 9400 N.E. 72nd Ave. Hodges will perform his one-man show and display country music memorabilia from his personal collection. This is a monthly show, usually on the first Friday of every month. There is no charge to attend the January show; regular admission is $5 per adult or $10 for a family of four. Children 5 and under are always free.

Dark or milk
