EVENTS & REMINDERS

  • Billy Martin and Wil Blades Duo: 7 p.m., Fairfield Theatre Company, $27. " By all accounts from those who were there, the initial on-stage meeting between drummer Billy Martin and Hammond B-3 organist Wil Blades at the 2011 New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival was a barn burner of deep, in-the-pocket funk, spiraling soul-jazz, and kinetic grooves."
  • Retirement Plans - Which One is Right for You? 7 p.m., Fairfield Public Library, free. "We all know that we should be saving, we all know we should be saving more, but what is the best way to save for retirement?  Join us for a review of retirement saving options with executive educator Rick Bolton."
