Jesus Jones

Wall Street Theater, Norwalk

Friday, July 7, 8:00 pm

Calling all 90’s music-lovers. It’s about to get “Real Real Real.” This Grammy-nominated British alternative rock band from Bradford-on-Avon in Wiltshire was formed in late 1988. Their track “Right Here, Right Now” was an international hit, and was subsequently globally licensed for promotional and advertising campaigns. 

“Flag Bearers” Opening Reception

Saturday, July 8, 2:00 - 4:00 pm

Enjoy refreshments, conversation, and an exhibition that features flags and flag-like motifs by artists Jennie Carr, Keisha Rollins, Roxy Savage, Mark Savoia, and Rita Valley… a springboard for contemplating our relationship to flags as one of life’s most-encountered, most-repeated, most-imitated design objects. On view through Sept 29th.

”Kaleidoscope” Exhibit Opening Reception

Sorelle Gallery, Westport

Saturday, July 8, 3:00 - 5:00 pm

Featuring all new artwork by Connecticut artists Kelly Rossetti and Alina B. Light. A collaboration of two artists with different styles who play off one another for a uniquely cohesive visual.

Music at MoCA: Summer Carmargo

MoCA Westport, Westport

Saturday, July 8, 7:00 - 9:00 pm

A rare treat to soak up the talent of an emerging artist.

Arrive early to experience two exhibitions and to purchase delicious snacks from Marcia Selden Catering and drinks prepared by The Cup Bearer mixologists.

Quinn Sullivan

StageOne at FTC, Fairfield

Saturday, July 8, 7:45 - 10:00 pm

This guitar slinger may be young, but he’s a giant in the world of blues. Since appearing onstage with Buddy Guy as a fresh-faced eight-year-old with a talent for pulling notes from the guitar, Sullivan built himself a reputation amongst the blues cognoscenti. He's appeared onstage with the likes of Eric Clapton, Los Lobos, Tedeschi Trucks, and Joe Bonamassa. Come and see why Buddy Guy proclaims, “players like Quinn come along once in a lifetime.”

Ace Frehley

Ridgefield Playhouse

Sunday, July 9, 8:00 - 10:00 pm

The original lead guitarist for KISS, Ace may just be the coolest member of the band with rock ’n’ roll swagger, and a laid-back, mysterious air standing on 7-inch platform shoes. A true blast from the past!
