-- Prior to Sunday's Taste of Pinellas concert, Colbie Caillat visited All Children's Hopsital in St. Petersburg, where she hung out with patients and performed her hit Bubbly. That's her above with a 3-month old patient named Joshua Serrano. Hooray for good deeds!
-- R&B singer Joe will perform a Memorial Day weekend concert at 6 p.m. Sunday at the T Pepin Hospitality Centre in Tampa. Opening the show is Tampa's own Trumaine Lamar. Tickets are $45-$400; click here to get 'em.
-- Remember when Alien Ant Farm was a thing, and punk covers of pop songs were considered still relatively innovative? Fun times! Now you can relive your Smooth Criminal-loving salad days when Alien Ant Farm visits the State Theatre on July 31 (the same day as the Warped Tour; good luck with that, guys). Tickets are $16.

-- Some of you might remember a local arts and music writer named Sarah Gerard who moved to New York a couple of years ago. She's written a movie, and has launched a Kickstarter campaign to help it get made. Click here for the details on her flick, Birds of Paradise, and to contribute.
