—Saturday, September 14: It’s difficult to imagine Frank Fairfield living in an apartment, let alone using email or a cell phone. It’s much easier to picture him in the back of a boxcar, plucking his battered banjo. Mr. Fairfield may have an old folk sound, but he’s just 27, and he hails from California's central valley—not Appalachia. He plays fiddle, guitar and banjo while singing and hollering. With his Brylcreem-parted hair and high-waisted pants, he brings an old-time aesthetic to his music. 7:30 p.m. $12.
