-- Country singer Josh Thompson will hit the Round Up in Tampa on Dec. 16. (Man, the same night as Skrillex at the Ritz Ybor? There are gonna be so many bummed-out fans who have to choose!) Tickets are $10-$15. Click here.
-- Fedde Le Grand has rescheduled a postponed date at the Amphitheatre in Ybor City. The DJ and producer, who's been making headlines lately for his remixes of and collaborations with Coldplay, will perform at the Amp on Dec. 15. Tickets are $10-$20. Click here.
-- The Saw Doctors may not be the most famous Irish rock band of all time (thanks, U2), but they're probably in the top 10. The cult group will perform at Jannus Live on Feb. 25. Click here for details.
-- While the NBA lockout may be a nightmare for basketball fans, we have to admit, we're kinda intrigued by this D12 Foundation Celebrity Weekend that Magic center Dwight Howard has planned for this weekend in Orlando. There's a bowling event and an all-star basketball game. So far, official celebrity participants are hard to come by, but it looks like Howard is pushing a concert by Plies at Club Firestone on Saturday. Who knows, with Orlando Calling in town this weekend, maybe he can get Kid Cudi to stop by, or one of the Roots, or perhaps ... uh ... Bob Seger?
-- Speaking of out-of-town shows: Who's driving to Atlanta to see Neutral Milk Hotel's Jeff Mangum on Feb. 1?
