Thursday is the new Friday is some circles, so kick your weekend off right this Thursday with a night full of jazz music at Shenanigans (705 J St.). Ava Lemert goes on at 6 p.m., followed by Sabor (one of the performers at this year’s Jazz Jubilee) at 7 p.m. Plymouth-based Nine Gables Winery will be pouring vino. What more could you ask for? Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 at the door. For more information and tickets for Jazz on J—hosted by the Sacramento Day Trippers and EscapeSac.com—go to jazzonJ.com.
