Jazz Around Town: Find an air-conditioned space to hear some hot jazz

Yeah, it's hot outside, but I'm inside writing this post and checking out the new disc by James Farm. You think this is hot?  Next week I'm going to visit my father in Kansas, where it has been over 100 degrees for most of this month, with humdity index it's up over 110 some days! I'm hoping it will break before I get there, but expect that is mere wishful thinking.

There's quite a lot of jazz around over the next seven days and I'm going to try to catch me some before leaving town. Perhaps I'll catch you somewhere....?
