Wow, Fairfield is really old.
The town, which began as four squares of land divided by five roadways in the year 1639, celebrates its 375th birthday this year.
To mark the occasion, a cast of local musicians — including The Talking Heads’ and Tom Tom Clubs’ Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth — will take part in a special concert at Fairfield Theatre Company on Wednesday, Jan 29 at 7 p.m.
“Chris and Tina’s All Stars” will feature performances from Frantz and Weymouth, who live in Fairfield, Norwalk reggae singer Mystic Bowie, Bridgeport rock band The Zambonis and Bridgeport gypsy swing outfit Caravan of Thieves.
Tickets, which cost $95, can be purchased here. Proceeds will benefit FTC.
