Some goings on around town:
The Great Recession doesn't seem to have the jazz club and/or fondue business. The Hip Kitty Jazz Club in the Claremont Packing House appears to be surviving, thriving even. Tonight they've got the group Speed of Sound from 9pm to 1am.
You can see who's coming up by checking Hip Kitty's calendar of events.

The Claremont Folk Festival is back this Saturday after a one-year hiatus. This year's festival is a little smaller than the 2008 edition, which ran long after sunset and featured Ben Harper, Jackson Browne, and Taj Mahal. It's also cheaper this year - $15 general admission versus $50 in '08.
The festival runs from 10am to 6pm at Sycamore Elementary School, located at 225 W. 8th St., Claremont. There'll be lots of activities for kids, and children's admission is $5.

CLAREMONT PIANO MUSIC
No, not the dueling pianos of Piano Piano. From our favorite South Asian correspondent Anand Gupta, come word of an appearance by the Claremont Trio at the Cal Tech campus on January 23, 2011. The piano trio's performance is part of the Coleman Chamber Concerts series, now in its 107th season.
