What the Locals Know – On the first and third Tuesday of every month, there’s a really hip gypsy jazz jam at Stone Spiral Coffee House in Maplewood. Led by one of our town’s best guitarists, Paul Davis, it’s open for anyone who wishes to play the music of Django Reinhardt. 7 pm, no cover.
Music Note of Note: This year the opulent Fabulous Fox Theatre celebrates 90 years of hosting Broadway shows, Vegas performers, and top rock and comedy acts. When it opened in 1929, it featured a Wurlitzer pipe organ that cost $75,000; the renowned instrument featured 4 manuals, 36 ranks, and 348 stops. It was restored in 1981 and is still played.
