LA-based chanteuse/songwriter Jessica Fichot is a lot like her hometown of Paris — French at heart, but with a soul that’s truly international. Besides having a performance itinerary that has taken her to China, Mexico, Canada, and across the U.S. and western Europe, she is an active composer who has written songs for dozens of educational programs; she’s currently busy composing music for video games. Fichot is a regular at the Red Poppy, having made the venue her band’s West Coast stop almost every year for the last eight years.
Time: Doors 7:00PM / Show 7:30PM
