Donavon Frankenreiter is a surfer and a good friend of Jack Johnson's — but don't hold it against him. He plays feel-good, melodic, beach-friendly music, he's got a fantastic moustache and he'll be at the Ridgefield Playhouse Thursday night. The East Coast is a long way from California, but in mid-August even we can relate to a more laid-back vibe. The Sosos and the Breedings open the show.
Ridgefield Playhouse, 80 East Ridge Rd., Ridgefield. (203) 438-5795. Thu., Aug. 15, 8 p.m. $28-$37. ridgefieldplayhouse.org
