Jessica Fichot is living proof that globalization is good. Her French/Chinese/American heritage led the singer-songwriter and accordionist to explore musical styles as diverse as gypsy jazz, Shanghai swing, and French balladry. She and her crack band play One Longfellow Square (181 State St., Portland) at 8 p.m. Tix: $12 (all ages). 761-1751. onelongfellowsquare.com.
