Two hours later, saxophone hotshot Kamasi Washington, whose triple album “The Epic” and appearance on Kendrick Lamar’s “To Pimp a Butterfly” have propelled him to prominence over the past two years, plays at 8 p.m. at the Flynn Center. $25 to $60.

Nightclub: Boston-based singer-songwriter Ryan Montbleau sets up at the Light Club Lamp Shop near Radio Bean at 9:30 p.m. Free.

quirky: Don’t forget the school jazz bands – in fact, how could you, given that they play all day on weekdays in the Church Street Marketplace. The Camels Hump Middle School Jazz Band and Select Chorus visiting richmond to play on the Town Hall Stage at 2 p.m. Free.
