-- The Tampa Theatre may have temporarily lost a show by one acclaimed singer (Chris Cornell), but it's gaining one by another: Richard Thompson. His Richard Thompson Electric Trio will perform with Steve Robinson and Ed Woltil on Feb. 3 at the Tampa Theatre. Tickets start at $22.50.
-- Another day, another nightclub shooting in Ybor City -- although it bears mentioning that Club Manilla is several blocks away from the Seventh Avenue strip.
-- The Big Lebowski must be especially huge in Florida, because Lebowski Fest is returning to Orlando. The celebration of all things Dude will take place Feb. 10-11, with a party and movie screening at the House of Blues. Click here for details.
