What the Locals Know: Our local community radio station, KDHX, doesn’t just play great music on the air – they have a great stage where local and touring live performances take place. It’s a beautiful listening room. Check it out when they host a weekly Wednesday Night Jazz Crawl. This Thursday, the 18th, Lula Wiles, a traditional folk music trio from Boston, performs. 7:30 pm, $12.
Music Note of Note: Today the opulent Fabulous Fox Theatre is host to Broadway shows, Vegas performers, in addition to 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.
